Les Suprêmes, is the title of the French translation of Edward Kelsey Moore's award-winning novel, The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat. It did very well when it was published in France last year and was on their bestseller lists for much of last summer. Next month Babel/Actes Sud will publish a new pocket (poche) paperback edition of the french translation by Cloé Tralci, with Emmanuelle and Philippe Aronson. Les Suprêmes is available as a pocket paperback and also as an eBook.

Here are some review excerpts from the French media:
An energetic and cheerful cocktail, Les Suprêmes is carried from one end to the other by its trio of heroines. Strong and fragile women, bonded together to face difficulties... They were hard to leave. — Journal du Dimanche
...brilliantly embraces all the inner feelings of the trio, which swirl, while recounting their eventful story. — Le Figaro
A master stroke. The novel finds at each turn of their lives... suspense! It is as addictive as a television series, biting, but never mawkish... — Elle
This trio entrances us with its "small music" of life. One finishes reading the novel out of breath... Then there is only one desire: to sit in a corner of the diner in Plainview to await the arrival of the three Supremes, and be the first to discover more of their history. — Les Echos
