Told with wit, charm and heart, this debut novel set in small-town Indiana from the 1960s to the present day will appeal to anyone who loved The Help or Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe. Pull up a chair at Big Earl's diner and meet the 'Supremes': three women from Plainview, Indiana, who've been best friends since their high-school days in the Sixties. Clarice is a pious wife and mother struggling with her husband's infidelity; Barbara Jean must confront the tragic reverberations of a youthful love affair; and Odette, whose fearlessness has saved her friends many times, now faces a terrifying situation of her own. Come join the inseparable trio as they share the juiciest gossip, the occasional tear, and the most uproarious laughter at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat.

"The author uses warmhearted humor and salty language to bring to life a tight-knit African-American community. . . . With salt-of-the-earth characters like fearless Odette, motherless Barbara Jean, and sharp-tongued Clarice, along with an event-filled plot that readers will laugh and cry over, this is a good bet to become a best seller." --"Library Journal"Throughout the Supremes' intertwined stories is one constant--meeting and eating at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat, a place where relationships are forged, scandals are aired and copious amounts of chicken are consumed. . . . A novel of strong women, evocative memories and deep friendship." --"Kirkus"Edward Kelsey Moore's "The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat "had me nodding in recognition and laughing out loud when I wasn't crying. His delightful voice really rings true, bringing the unforgettable Odette, Clarice and Barbara Jean to vivid life on every page.--Connie Briscoe, author of "Money Can't Buy Me Love" ""The Supremes at Earl's-All-You-Can-Eat" is a scrumptious delight! I can't wait for my old friends to get to know my new friends: Odette, Barbara Jean, and Clarice (not to mention Odette's pot-smoking mama and her friend Mrs. Roosevelt!)." - Carleen Brice, author of "Orange Mint and Honey" and "Children of the Waters" "I am always a little suspicious of a male writer speaking for female characters, but Moore inhabits and enlarges the experience he creates so delightfully. A real triumph for a brilliant new novelist." --Suzanne Levine, author of "How We Love Now: Women Talk About Intimacy after Fifty" "Edward Kelsey Moore has written a novel jam-packed with warmth, honesty, wit, travail, and just enough madcap humor to keep us giddily off-balance. It teems with memorable characters, chief among them Odette, as unlikely and irresistible protagonist as we are likely to meet. "The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat" is that rare and happy find: a book that delivers not only go
