[slight bumping to bottom corners, otherwise a solid clean book; jacket has a few small closed tears, a bit of wear at the extremities, very slight paper loss to front hinges, a little creasing at top left corner of front panel]. The author is described in the jacket copy as "America's Number One Madam" -- a claim made, of course, by virtually every single former bordello proprietor who ever put pen to paper -- but Ms. Stanford has as good a candidate for the title as any, and is direct and often very funny as she tells about "her life, her times, the great and near-great she has known, about San Francisco in the wide-open days before the war, about her numerous tussles with the law, about her retirement and her famous Valhalla Restaurant, and about her historic campaign for councilman in Sausalito, California."
