Bailey, Paul, 1937-2015
Books
In May 1927, 19-year-old Dinu Grigorescu is newly arrived in Paris. He has been sent from Bucharest by his wealthy father to embark upon a bohemian adventure and relish the unique pleasures of Parisian life. But tentatively, secretly, Dinu is drawn to the Bains du Ballon d'Alsace, a notorious establishment rumoured to offer the men of Paris, married or otherwise, who enjoy something different, everything they crave. It is here that he meets Rǎzvan, a fellow Romanian, the adopted child of a man of refinement - a prince's boy - whose stories of Proust and other artists entrance Dinu, and who will become the young man's teacher in the ways of the world.
