Das Wunder am Ende der Straße (The Miracle at the End of the Street), is the German title for the translation of Edward Kelsey Moore’s latest novel, The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues. German publisher Limes has just released the book this week! It is the sequel to the first Supremes novel, which in German translation has the title: Mrs Roosevelt und das Wunder von Earl’s Diner (Mrs. Roosevelt and the Miracle of Earl’s Diner). The new translation is available as a hardcover book (Gebundenes Buch) and eBook throughout Germany and other parts of the world including stores and online merchants in: Switzerland, Belgium, Austria and more! It was translated from English by Babette Schröder.
You might wonder why the book's title in German is different than the English title? The publisher is continuing what they started with the first novel. Here's a question, and Edward's comment on this:
Why do the international translations of The Supremes At Earl's All-You-Can-Eat have different book titles?
EKM: Apparently ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT diners are virtually non-existent outside of the U.S., so the title has been changed for each foreign publisher.

Quarante ans après avoir quitté la petite ville de Plainview dans l’Indiana en faisant le serment de ne plus jamais y remettre les pieds, un chanteur de blues dans la débine revient sur les lieux à contrecoeur afin de s’y produire à l’occasion de l’improbable mariage d’un vieil ami. Tandis qu’elles assistent à sa prestation incroyablement émouvante, Odette, Clarice et Barbara Jean, dites “Les Suprêmes”, n’ont pas la moindre idée de la profonde mutation que l’arrivée d’un tel personnage, venu d’un lointain passé, va provoquer en elles et autour d’elles. Après le triomphe de son premier roman, Les Suprêmes (best-seller dans la liste du New York Times qui a enthousiasmé les lecteurs du monde entier), Edward Kelsey Moore revient avec une histoire de pères et de fils, de péchés de jadis et d’acceptations à venir, qu’incarnent de nouveau, sous le signe d’une irrésistible drôlerie, des personnages aussi puissants qu’attachants.
(Forty years after leaving the small town of Plainview in Indiana, and swearing never to set foot there again, a down-on-his-luck blues singer returns to reluctantly perform on the occasion of the unlikely marriage of an old friend. While attending this incredibly moving performance, Odette, Clarice and Barbara Jean, called “Les Suprêmes,” have no idea of the profound change that the arrival of such a character from the distant past will provoke in them and those around them. After the triumph of his first novel, Les Suprêmes (a New York Times best-seller that was met with enthusiasm by readers around the world), Edward Kelsey Moore returns with a story of fathers and sons, of sins of the past and future acceptance, brought to life with irresistible humor and characters as powerful as they are endearing.)
Edward Kelsey Moore’s The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues, has been entertaining readers in the United States since last summer. Overseas the fans have had to be patient while translations of this second Supremes book were being prepared. Edward Kelsey Moore’s debut Supremes novel, The Supremes At Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat, was published in France during the spring of 2014. It became quite popular and was on bestseller lists there for several months. And now the Suprêmes sequel, Les Suprêmes Chantent le Blues, is coming in June from publisher Actes Sud. French-reading fans in France and other countries throughout the world can’t wait to be reunited with Odette, Clarice and Barbara Jean! The book’s cover art has been revealed — take a closer look by clicking on the cover image.
During all the excitements of the past week... the publication of the American edition of Edward Kelsey Moore’s The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues, bookstore appearances by E.K.M. in the Chicago area (3 events) and Indianapolis (last weekend), near Atlanta, GA (two days ago), AND a reading at a bookstore in far-northern Michigan (Petoskey, MI), there hasn’t been the chance to announce that the British edition of his new novel has been released by the venerable publishing house of Hodder & Stoughton! This over-the-pond edition of The Supremes, available in Hardcover and E-Book, has all the marvellous characters and humour of the U.S. edition, with the added excitement of the British book being available throughout the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and many of the current and former British Territories. Our own Odette, Clarice and Barbara Jean will share their latest adventures with many new and returning readers from around the globe! And one might even say, that wherever you find them, anyone who is a reader and friend of the Plainview Supremes would be a grand friend of ours, and yours, too!
