Synopsis: According to Pauline Tabor, madams are made, not born. And as her memoirs of four decades as a bawdy house operator reveal, Pauline knew exactly what she is talking about. It was as a divorced mother of two young sons-a respectable matron of Bowling Green, Kentucky, who was struggling to make a living during the Depression years by selling hosiery and cosmetics form door to door-that Pauline decided to open a house of prostitution in her home town. Never having been inside such a house, and never having known a prostitute, Pauline spent a hectic weekend in a notorious Tennessee brothel, learning the secrets of the profession of a madam. Bolstered by this 'basic training,' she returned to Bowling Green, opened the town's finest house of ill fame, and started a long and colorful career as the madam of bordellos in Bowling Green, Louisville, and Indiana. Her most notorious house, at 627 Clay St in Bowling Green, was famous for more than 25 years as a plush palace of pleasure, providing all manner of gracious loving for well-heeled customers from all parts of the nation. Pauline's memoirs provide one of literature's most intimate revelations of what goes on behind the walls of a whorehouse. As a retired brothel-keeper, Pauline frankly discusses her lifetime in the illicit sex business. CONTENTS: What's a nice girl like you doing in a place like this? * The making of a madam * A madam builds a dream house * Girls, girls, girls! * The 'tricks' * The big-time spenders * The law..and the outlaws * Special friends-and enemies * Christmas in a whorehouse * A 'moonlighting' madam * A madam looks at sex in our society * the closing of the house on Clay St * 'Studio portrait' of Pauline Tabor
