Edward Kelsey Moore, The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache BluesLeft Bank Books welcomes bestselling author Edward Kelsey Moore, who will sign and discuss his new novel, The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues!

The late-in-life and paradoxical marriage of a gentleman’s club owner and a devout church-goer brings together the people of Plainview, Indiana with the great Blues guitarist El Walker, who once vowed to never set foot in the town again. But El is not the only Plainview native with a hurdle to overcome. A philandering husband struggles to prove his faithfulness to his wife. A young transwoman lights out for Chicago to escape her father’s wrath and live an authentic life. And a group of lifelong friends, known locally as “The Supremes,” each find themselves struggling with personal demons, the ghosts of their pasts, and what it truly means to live.

“[This] author’s love for his characters . . . shines from every page.” —Shelf Awareness
