E.K.M. will enjoy some music making in September when he revs up his cello and joins the orchestra at Chicago Opera Theater for Macbeth, composed by Ernest Bloch. This powerful opera follows the torments which Macbeth and his Lady experience as they fall prey to a spiral of ambition and murder. Doomed by his own guilt, Macbeth is slain by a man "not born of a woman." Swiss-American composer Bloch invests Shakespeare’s original text with an emotional, hair-raising score of tremendous impact. From the moment the curtain rises, this 110-minute non-stop thriller captures the dark and bloody world where ambition and revenge run rampant!

Following on the summer-long success of the French edition, the German translation of Edward Kelsey Moore's The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat: Mrs Roosevelt and the Miracle of Earl's Diner, has been released in paperback by publisher Blanvalet. This edition is now available online and in shops throughout Germany and other countries with German readers including: Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and more! This is the second publication of the novel for German-speakers; the hardcover edition was released last year. Here are a couple of reviews:
"In his debut novel, Edward Kelsey Moore tells the life stories of three African-American women in the southern states from the sixties to today. Fantastic, touching and loving" (Happinez)
"A book about friendship and love; and Moore's telling is humorous, warm-hearted and without fear of big emotions." (NDR Kultur HF)
"A debut novel that you do not want to put down." (Hörzu)
A few merchants also have the German translation as an eBook, German audio compact discs, or by audio-digital-download. The audio editions are read by the popular German actress, Regina Lemnitz.
