A hardcover, large-print edition of The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat has been published by Thorndike Press/Gale Cengage. Libraries in particular, but also individuals, love the convenience of large-print editions! These hardcovers contain the complete novel, and this edition has the same cover art as the one from Knopf. You can easily tell them apart by the back cover, it clearly states: "A Large Print Edition" at the top. Order a copy from your local bookseller or online. A big brick-and-mortar store may even have it in stock. Get a large-print edition of The Supremes and see for yourself -- if LARGER is better!
You may encounter a different large-print cover online -- aqua and cream with red lettering. If the International Book Number is -- ISBN 13: 9781410457691 then it's the large-print edition described above and it will ship to you with the U.S. cover shown here. Wherever you shop, the price will be more than other hardcovers as large-prints are more expensive to produce.
Taking two more steps toward worldwide acclaim, a far-flung correspondent has sent us the photo below of The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat (British edition) on display in South Africa! Exclus1ves Books has 48 shops across South Africa (and one in Botswana). Not only is the novel on display in their shops but Exclus1ves "especially hand-picked" The Supremes as one of their five "Best Reads" for the month of May!
Meanwhile, far off in the country that brought us Chicken Paprikash and Zsa Zsa Gabor, we've received word that publisher I.P.C. Könyvek Kft., will be bringing the world a Hungarian translation of The Supremes. This means, in addition to the U.S., German, British and Hebrew editions which are already released, there are editions coming in Dutch, French, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, and Brazilian Portuguese! You might not speak Hungarian -- but no matter which language you meet them in -- more and more people around the world are making new friends with Odette, Clarice and Barbara Jean!
Since March, when The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat was published, a handful (or more) fresh reviews of the novel appear each week, written by book reviewers from newspapers large and small, librarians writing articles on the best new books for a local paper or library site, and candid reviews by enthusiastic bloggers who love the The Supremes so much they need to share their excitement with the world. In the past we've posted links for some of the articles by larger newspapers, below is a sampling of some of the best reviews from "local" reviewers. There are dozens more you can search for and read. Everyone who has generously taken the time to write, and print or post a review of The Supremes has given Edward Kelsey Moore even more incentive and inspiration to move forward with his work on the next novel. Thank you!
