A captivating novel, based on true events, that follows the rise to power of New Orleans’s most infamous whore-turned-madam.
New Orleans, 1897. Mary Deubler makes her living as a so-called Alley Whore— until bible-thumping Alderman Sidney Story creates a red-light district, mockingly dubbed “Storyville.” Through gumption, twists of fate, even a touch of voodoo, Mary rises above her hopeless lot to become the notorious Madam Josie Arlington.
Filled with fascinating historical details and characters like Jelly Roll Morton, Louie Armstrong, and photographer E. J. Bellocq, Madam is a fabulous romp through the Big Easy that will delight readers of novels like THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL and nonfiction books such as The Duchess and American Rose.
