Revealing and scandalous, this book narrates the life of Nell Kimball, first as a prostitute in one of the most luxurious brothels of Saint Louis, and later as the owner and manager of other equally luxurious houses. In both cases she carried out her profession with dedication and mastery, especially her role as madam. Offering an acute and intuitive look into the United States of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the author shares the intimate and oftentimes darker side of important politicians and businessmen, and the real business, political, and legal transactions that facilitated the keeping up of appearances at the time.

 

Revelador y escandaloso, este libro narra la vida de Nell Kimball, primero como prostituta en uno de los más lujosos burdeles de Saint Louis, y después como propietaria y administradora de otras casas igualmente suntuosas. En ambos casos ejerció su profesión con gran dedicación y maestría, en especial en su papel de madame. Ofreciendo una mirada aguda e intuitiva de los Estados Unidos de fines del siglo XIX y principios del XX, la autora da a conocer el lado íntimo y a menudo oscuro de importantes políticos y hombres de negocios, y los verdaderos acuerdos económicos, políticos y judiciales que permitían sostener la apariencia respetable del entramado social de su tiempo.
