Book Description Plume, 2014. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "If you are enthralled with New Orleans and the history of its fabled red light district, this is the book for you. The evocative characters lovingly created by Cari Lynn and Kellie Martin made me wish Storyville was resurrected and rollicking with harlots and madams today." Patti LuPone, actress, singer, author "Madam is a fascinating recreation of New Orleans at the end of the 19th century, when the churchgoing politicians and power-brokers of sin created Storyville. An absorbing peek into the hidden history of the city and her most famous madam." Loraine Despres, bestselling author of The Scandalous Summer of Sissy LeBlanc "Lynn and Martin tell the story of their protagonist's rise to fame and fortune without piousness, sentimentality, or apology. Thorough research, convincing detail and true to life characters, makes this a spellbinder of a novel. The reader can almost smell the sweat of the johns and the fragrance of rose attar and shrimp gumbo. The characters' words roll off their tongues like molasses in August." Roberta Rich, author of The Midwife of Venice and The Harem Midwife "Love the history they wouldn't teach you in school? Then open up Cari Lynn and Kellie Martin's MADAM. It's a gritty, well-researched story of how Storyville, the largest legal red light district in the United States came into being." Lois Battle, bestselling author of Storyville and War Brides "I encourage you to accept this invitation to escape into the boudoirs and back alleys of 19th century New Orleans and leave behind our modern world for a spell. Kellie and Cari have vividly resurrected a world that most of us have never seen up close, and it's quite a ride!" Danica McKellar, actress and New York Times bestselling author " Madam delivers a world rich with details and visuals of a time and place long forgotten in our history. If you liked Memoirs of a Geisha, you will love following Mary on her harrowing journey to become an infamous Madam in New Orleans red-light district." Melissa Joan Hart, actress and author of Melissa Explains It All: Tales from My Abnormally Normal Life "With brilliant immediate language and fascinating detail, Madam jelly-rolls us through a gritty 1897 New Orleans underworld, and allows us to cheer as a sweet young prostitute fights all odds to become one of its great madams." Jennie Fields, author of The Age of Desire " Madam is an utterly enjoyable and fascinating read! It's a story of a true underdog, Mary Deubler, who overcomes adversity while making history in New Orleans during the turn of the century. I found myself rooting for our protagonist from the very first page. Kudos to Mary and to Cari Lynn and Kellie Martin!" Ricki Lake, actress, host, producer "An odyssey through the underworld and the spirit world of New Orleans, Madam is layered in rags and silks and voodoo visitations. This is a story of desperation turned inside out. Power holds court in back rooms and bedrooms but reaches its full potential in the heart and mind of a young prostitute whose prize possession is a pair of striped stockings she plucked from a rich woman's trash. This book manages to wrap transformation in sensuality and historical detail, and set the whole thing to the sound of ragtime. Bien jou! " Rita Leganski, author of The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow "As rich and evocative as New Orleans jazz, Cari Lynn and Kellie Martin evoke a time and place with tantalizing detail, transporting the reader to a world hidden not only by the past, but by the very society that created it. Madam is a wonderful portrait of an indelible figure." DeLaun Michel, author of The Safety of Secrets "Set in the vivid, visceral world of New Orleans in the late 1800's, Madam follows a young prostitute's desperate struggle to survive, thrive and ultimately achieve self-empowerment in the face of hugely challenging circumstance. With plenty of sex and liquor to go around, Kellie and. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0142180629

Book Description Plume Books, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 201 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. When vice had a legal home and jazz was being born--the captivating story of an infamous true-life madam New Orleans, 1900. Mary Deubler makes a meager living as an alley whore. That all changes when bible-thumping Alderman Sidney Story forces the creation of a red-light district that s mockingly dubbed Storyville. Mary believes there s no place for a lowly girl like her in the high-class bordellos of Storyville s Basin Street, where Champagne flows and beautiful girls turn tricks in luxurious bedrooms. But with gumption, twists of fate, even a touch of Voodoo, Mary rises above her hopeless lot to become the notorious Madame Josie Arlington. Filled with fascinating historical details and cameos by Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, and E. J. Bellocq, Madam is a fantastic romp through The Big Easy and the irresistible story of a woman who rose to power long before the era of equal rights. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780142180624
