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.
