Rosalind Franklin died of cancer in 1958 and couldn't tell her story. Biographer Sayre, who knew Franklin, wrote this book to counter Watson's description of "Rosy"that he gives in his book "The Double Helix." Sayre gives voice to this important part of the story. But this biography has been criticized for going the other way; for lionizing Franklin with an obvious feminist bias without critically evaluating any of her faults.
