Day 26 – Funny Book:
I had to go with The Supreme’s at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat. It really has been the funniest book I’ve read in a while. I think I should search out funny books in the future. It’s good to laugh between a few serious, heavy books. The thing that is so brilliant with this book is the way Edward Kelsey more writes the three black female characters. It’s so perfect. He must have been a black woman in another life. Brilliant lines! Touching scenes. He manages to put a bit of everything in it.
“Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat diner in Plainview, Indiana is home away from home for Odette, Clarice, and Barbara Jean. Dubbed “The Supremes” by high school pals in the tumultuous 1960s, they’ve weathered life’s storms for over four decades and counseled one another through marriage and children, happiness and the blues.
Now, however, they’re about to face their most challenging year yet. Proud, talented Clarice is struggling to keep up appearances as she deals with her husband’s humiliating infidelities; beautiful Barbara Jean is rocked by the tragic reverberations of a youthful love affair; and fearless Odette is about to embark on the most terrifying battle of her life. With wit, style and sublime talent, Edward Kelsey Moore brings together three devoted allies in a warmhearted novel that celebrates female friendship and second chances.”
