Uncle Rudolf by Paul Bailey( Book )
11 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 588 libraries worldwide
"Seventy-year-old Andre reflects back on his life, beginning with his Jewish childhood in Romania on the eve of World War II. Andre's father, in a desperate effort to save him from the coming holocaust, hands him over to his captivating uncle Rudolf, an internationally famous singer of popular operettas. Rudolf is a sublimely gifted lyric tenor, a dashing leading man who is the object of many women's affections-but also an artist who lives in the shadow of his own unachieved potential as an opera star. Rudolf takes the boy to back to London, renames him Andrew, turns all his attention and sardonic humor upon him, and gradually sculpts him into a gentleman. Vivid, often lighthearted scenes of Andrew's worldly life with Rudolf are intertwined with the unfolding secrets of his forgotten past as Andre, which have shadowed his otherwise happy life. Uncle Rudolf reveals the emotions of a man whose achievement falls short of his brilliant promise. It is a wise, knowing, elegant story about the sacrifices we make for those we love"--Publisher's description
Gabriel's lament by Paul Bailey( Book )

Before his father, Oswald, inherited the money, Gabriel Harvey was a happy enough child. Though missing his beloved mother, Amy, when she went off to work in her "secret place," he was beguiled by his father's tall tales and absurdly embellished memories of a deprived childhood, recounted in the gaslit kitchen of their terraced house in a poor part of London. Even the regulars at the Prodigal's Return noted how the switch from beer to whiskey had transformed Oswald from wag to philosopher. For Gabriel, the windfall marked an ominous change in his father's character
