From the Pulitzer Prize winner, Debby Applegate, Madam lights the literary world on fire.  Everybody came to Polly’s. Pearl “Polly” Adler was a diminutive but notorious madam whose Roaring Twenties brothels hosted gangsters, politicians, writers, sports stars and Cafe Society swells. The often jaw-dropping story of a Jewish immigrant from eastern Europe, Polly Adler’s life is a classic American story of success and assimilation, and of a corrupt yet glamorous, transformational era when high and low collided, creating the unique ingredient that fuels American culture. 

Debby Applegate has a PhD in American Studies from Yale University.
