The improbability of love : a novel by Hannah Rothschild( Book )

26 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Annie McMorrow, 31 and not recovered from the end of her long-term relationship, is an assistant to film producer Carlo Spinetti and then to his chilling wife Rebecca Winkleman Spinetti whose father started Winkleman Fine Art in Curzon St. Annie has spent her meagre savings on a dusty painting from a junk shop to give to her new, unsuitable, boyfriend who never shows up for his birthday dinner. The painting now hers, talks, but only to us. Shrewd, spoiled, charming, world weary and cynical, he comments perceptively on Annie, and the modern world and tells tales about his previous owners: Louis XV, Voltaire, Catherine the Great among others. The story unfolds through this voice and many others--unexpected, entertaining, and strangely authentic. Annie will have her apartment ransacked and be pursued by dealers, buyers and an auctioneer in an attempt to get back the painting. With The Improbability of Love, Rothschild has spun a dazzling tale--both irreverant and entertainng--of a many-layered, devious world where, in the end, love triumphs"--

The jazz baroness( Visual )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary filmmaker Hannah Rothschild tries to uncover the real story about her great aunt, Baroness Pannonica Rothschild de Koenigswarter. This is the story of a British heiress who left her husband and children to move to New York and immerse herself in the jazz scene. Eventually, she met Monk and they became close friends. While her appalled family cut off most of her funds, she still began helping jazzmen - with medical bills, food, rent money, the cost of living. In the end, suggests Hannah, Nica found the life that fulfilled her. "The Jazz Baroness" is riddled with tragedies, explicit and implied

She seemed to have it all: children, a handsome husband, and a trust fund. But in the early 1950s, Nica Rotschild heard "Round Midnight" by the jazz legend Thelonious Monk; the music overtook her like a magic spell, and she abandoned her marriage to go and find him. She was shunned by society but the musicians gave her friendship. She gave them material and emotional support. Her convertible Bentley was a familiar sight outside the clubs; her notoriety was sealed when Charlie Parker died in her apartment. But her real love was reserved for Monk, whom she cared for until his death in 1982
