Stories should interest you, touch you, move you. There are 134 in ‘Next’. Many, possibly even most, will do just that. ‘Youth’, ‘love’, ‘life’, ‘death’, and so much more. Stories often relevant to you, your life, past and future. Stories very readable, memorable.


‘Next’ is generous, a friend you will want to spend time with. A book to keep beside your favourite chair, beside your bed. A friend to meet up with often over the years. Rather special, rather out of the ordinary.

In the mid-sixties, Christopher Elliott, then a student of English and French literature at Trinity College, Dublin, found himself in a small group studying short story writing with the great Irish writer, Frank O’Connor. Elliott’s first pieces were not successful. “You have to tell a story,” said the master. “If there’s no story, there’s nothing.” But in those years, Christopher Elliott had few stories to tell. Today, many years later, the world has remedied that.
