"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 bestselling author of Fear of Flying
"The Next isn’t just a ghost story—it’s a love story, a family story, and a revenge story as well. Stephanie Gangi’s novel is fast-paced, wickedly observant, and haunting in the best sense of the word."
— Tom Perrotta bestselling author of The Leftovers
"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 bestselling author of The Love Letter, Rameau's Niece, Alice in Bed
"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 | bestselling author of Something Borrowed and First Comes Love
