Imagine growing up as part of the Rothschild dynasty, surrounded by great art and great minds. Contrary to what some might think this family has had its struggles, namely the fight to reclaim its paintings from the Nazis. Hannah Rothschild, chair of London’s National Gallery, grew up heavily involved in family matters and has turned her insider's view of the art world into a fascinating novel. ‘The Improbability of Love’ is joint winner of the Bollinger Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction 2016 and has been shortlisted for the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction 2016.
