Below are a couple of reviews from the Polish press:
Trio of Plainview is a warm tale of friendship so durable that even sickness, betrayal, and a poltergeist Eleanor Roosevelt are not able to destroy the ties between Odette, Barbara Jean, and Clarice. Touching, witty and honest, the author not only understands women, but most of all loves them immensely.
-- Ilona Rechnio "Harper's Bazaar, Polska"
By the end I could not believe that this wonderful book about women's friendship was written by a guy. If, indeed, the name Moore is not hiding a woman, then I've come to the conclusion that men really know about us. For example, that we like to be moved, but that we like even more to laugh... Above all at ourselves.
-- Marta Mizuro, "The Mirror"
Six Months of THE SUPREMES AT EARL'S
Six months have passed since THE SUPREMES AT EARL’S ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT was released and I’ve never had so much fun in my life. I had a little dream for this book and what has happened since March has blown that little dream out of the water. A year ago, I never would have imagined that THE SUPREMES would have brought me new friends in Germany (Hello to my traveling companions, Regula, Regina, Berit!) or put me in front of enthusiastic readers in England. (Thank you, Francesca.)
The past several months have reminded me again and again that booksellers are the coolest people on the face of the planet. Before meeting so many dedicated booksellers, I thought that my fellow musicians were the only people who were willing to work so hard for so little remuneration, just because they loved their work.
And the best thing of all about the past six months has been meeting and hearing from the readers who embraced my book and turned it into a New York Times bestseller. When I say “thank you” at readings, I mean it. I appreciate every single reader. And I want to say a special thank you to the people who have written the kind and touching emails to me. I wasn’t anticipating many letters or emails, and I’ve now received thousands. I think I’ve written back to everyone by now to express my gratitude, but I want to say again how honored I feel to have received each email and note.
I know I’ll get to say hello in person to more of you over the coming year. Thanks again for treating me and THE SUPREMES to a magical six months.
