Today I finished the book The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat by Edward Kelsey Moore. It was really good. It’s about three older African American women in Indiana who are known in town as the Supremes (because they remind people of Diana Ross and her group). The book delves into their lives, their loves, their children, and their missed ambitions. The lives of all the characters revolve around Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat, a local restaurant where all the interesting characters in town hang out. I loved the small town feel of the story and how the characters were far removed from the politics of their time. Edward Kelsey Moore presents a cast of very interesting personalities, including people who see ghosts, cheating husbands, arrogant rich people, and slimy fortune tellers. Each character brings flavor to the story as they learn to coexist in their own small town.
Maybe that’s what I’m feeling most as we’re now less than 36 hours away from the Trump presidency. I don’t want to hear or see Trump’s dishonesty and incompetence. I also don’t want to deal with the equally dishonest and incompetent Far Left Liberal backlash that is bound to come out. I want to close my ears and just live outside of politics.
So if you’re like me, check out The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat.
