Longstreet's book, Nell Kimball: Her Life as an American Madam, by herself, is a hoax biography that was partly plagiarized from the works of Herbert Asbury, as was his novel The Wilder Shore from Ashbury's The Barbary Coast. Longstreet's nonfiction works include San Francisco, '49 to '06 and Chicago: 1860 to 1920, as well as A Century on Wheels, The Story of Studebaker and a Jewish cookbook, The Joys of Jewish Cooking, that he wrote with his wife and occasional collaborator, Ethel.
Nell Kimball was self-taught. She made a life for herself from nothing. She was a tough survivor with a real head for business and marketing. It makes you wonder what she could have achieved with an education. Even though she was a madam the two men she picked to marry weren't worthy of her. If she had found a good man and left the life then she probably wouldn't have wrote the book.

Nell Kimball operated lavish houses in San Francisco and New Orleans and began her red velvet catering as a worker in the vineyards in St. Louis. She wrote her story after her retirement from public service in 1917 when her New Orleans house was closed. The first chapter, ""My Last House,"" contains a Principles and Philosophy run-down (""I never had truck with the idea whores had hearts of gold. Linen is a big item""). 286 pp. New York: The Macmillan Company. Nell never went to school, but she had a quick, retentive mind, a sharp eye for detail and a keen appreciation of life's truths and ironies. She also had, in her own words, a hell of a yen to live. It kept her going in the sex trade.
