About the Edition

When a late life love affair blooms between Mr. Forrest Payne, the owner of the Pink Slipper Gentleman"s Club, and Miss Beatrice Jordan, famous for yelling warnings of eternal damnation at the Club"s departing patrons, their wedding summons a legend to town. Mr. El Walker, the great guitar bluesman, comes home to give a command performance in Plainview, Indiana, a place he"d sworn never to set foot in again. Among those in this tightly knit community who show up every Sunday after church for lunch at Earl"s All-You-Can-Eat are the lifelong friends known locally as The Supremes: Clarice, facing down her chance at and fear of a great career; Barbara Jean, grappling with the loss of a mother whose life humiliated both of them, and Odette, reaching toward her husband through an anger of his that she does not understand.
