Award-winning novelist Paul Bailey introduces his latest work, The Prince’s Boy. Set in 1927, it sees 19-year-old Dinu Grigorescu arrive in Paris from his home of Bucharest with literary ambitions, sent by his father to enjoy the pleasures of Parisian life. He meets a fellow Romanian, a Prince’s boy, who becomes his teacher in the ways of the world.

Bailey is a regular visitor to Romania and has used his experiences to inform the novel. He has written 11 novels including At the Jerusalem, winner of a Somerset Maugham Award and an Arts Council Writer’s Award; Peter Smart’s Confessions and Gabriel’s Lament, both short-listed for the Booker; and most recently Chapman’s Odyssey. He has received the E M Forster Award and the George Orwell Memorial Award.

Here he talks to journalist and author Paul Blezard.
