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.
