The Baroness is Hannah Rothschild's biography of her great aunt, Pannonica, who turned her back on the life of European privilege into which she had been born and fled to the flourishing jazz scene of New York in the 1950s. The book offers an extraordinary insider's insight into the famously private Rothschild family.

Featuring details taken from first-hand interviews with family and friends including Sonny Rollins, Clint Eastwood, Thelonious Monk junior, Miriam Rothschild and Nica herself, this biography paints a detailed portrait of the Rothschild family and recreates a moment in jazz history.
