Meet Odette, Clarice, and Barbara Jean. Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat is home away from home for this inseparable trio. Dubbed “the Supremes” by high school pals in the tumultuous 1960s, they weather life’s storms together for the next four decades. Now, during their most challenging year yet, dutiful, proud, and talented Clarice must struggle to keep up appearances as she deals with her husband’s humiliating infidelities. Beautiful, fragile Barbara Jean is rocked by the tragic reverberations of a youthful love affair. And fearless Odette engages in the most terrifying battle of her life while contending with the idea that she has inherited more than her broad frame from her notorious mother, Dora.

Through marriage, children, happiness, and the blues, these strong, funny women gather each Sunday at the same table at Earl’s diner for delicious food, juicy gossip, occasional tears, and uproarious banter.

With wit, style, and sublime talent, Edward Kelsey Moore brings together four intertwined love stories, three devoted allies, and two sprightly earthbound spirits in a big-hearted debut novel that embraces the lives of people you will never forget.

  • 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.

The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat is that rare and happy find: a book that delivers not only  good story, but good company. Leah Hager Cohen, author of The Grief of Others

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.
  • The Supremes at Earl’s-All-You-Can-Eat is a scrumptious delight!

  • Funny and tenderhearted. . . Moore expertly combines tragedy and comedy in a way that feels fluid and natural, creating a world that is internally consistent and rich. . . .
