"I love The Next. Well, let me be more specific: I LOVE THE NEXT. Comic, wrenching revenge fantasy; New York City, all around the town; an insightful poodle; the tender reality of motherhood and daughterhood; the less tender reality of social media, and a ghost with the wit of Topper and the fire of Fay Weldon. This is an elegantly written, thoughtfully sharp and surprisingly touching whirlwind of a book." Cathleen Schine
Stephanie Gangi s novel is fast-paced, wickedly observant, and haunting in the best sense of the word. Tom Perrotta
"I was instantly hooked by Gangi's vivid writing, her psychological acumen, and her sharp observation of love and life. She is a fascinating writer who understands love, sex, men and women. I truly could not stop reading. The Next is a riveting debut by a fiercely talented writer." Erica Jong
"A profound and provocative page-turner about love and loss, revenge and redemption, this debut novel will
stick with you for a long time. Stephanie Gangi is an instant, new favorite. Emily Giffin
