This is the saga of Madame Rosenbloom's fashionable establishment in Chicago and of the ladies in her domain. And here is the Jim Tully of "Circus Parade", the forthright Tully whose language is as frank as life itself. Tully does not pull his punches. The big men and the little ladies for whom Madame Rosenbloom's house is a social center are portrayed with vigor and honesty. The novel is crammed with incident and penetrating word pictures. It is not a story for the squeamish. But if life itself, that robust, lusty segment of life that is here so honestly and brilliantly depicted, does not frighten or shock you, this novel will hold your deepest interest. Upon initial printing of this book in 1935, copies were seized from the publisher and destroyd by police based on allegations that the material was obscene and blasphemous. It is unknown how many copies survived. This is the first printing since that time.

Jeremiah made her promise to correspond with him. “I’ll

He’ll fix everything— They’ll never look for you in a ten-dollar house.” Chapter 25 Drunk on champagne, they came to Mother Rosenbloom’s, laughing and singing, We’re wild and woolly and full of fleas— We’ve never been curried below the knees! We’re little boys in big men’s britches— Two

When he left the next morning, he said to Leora, “You’re some girl, but I was right the first time—we’re different—we’re not cut out for each other—you get what I mean, don’t you? I’m not the guy for you, but I wish I was. Well, so long, Leora, they ain’t nobody kin please ‘em all. I’ve tried.” He gave Leora more money than he had given the other girls. “I’m goin’ to give you fair warnin’, Kid, you’re goin’ to go for me before you

She’s got more brains than most women,” said Mother Rosenbloom. It was the same maid who had kept

reaching for the glass. “Here I’m a horse, and I lean on a lovely fly like you—but it’s all in fun,” he sighed, with an effort at banter, and was calm a moment before he resumed, “Just stand by me, dearie—just you and me. “They can’t make a law in this state without me, dear. I put them in and I take them out—and believe me—I know what it’s all about. I made Jack Harris governor just like that.” Leora heard his fingers snap. “And I’ll tell you why—he was good to me when I was a kid… He was a Jew
