Pannonica Rothschild (1913-88), known as 'Nica', was born into the wealth and privilege of the famous banking family. She married a baron and lived in the world of tycoons, royalty and intelligentsia; then, in around 1948-9, she heard Thelonious Monk play and gave up high society to follow Monk and the jazz to New York. In this book, Hannah Rothschild goes in search of her great aunt and pieces together Nica's unconventional life.
