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.
