The Next Best Man and 11 other short stories is a collection of some of the funniest short stories you will ever read. From a trip to Mardi Gras, to a ten year reunion to a romance novelist covering baseball for a daily, The Next Best Man starts you laughing on page 1 until page 7 and then again on page 16 and well, you get the idea, it can sometimes be funny. You will finish reading each short story and wish it was a book of long stories instead. Give it a shot, the worst thing that can happen is that you might not enjoy the book. If this is the case, I will call you myself and apologize.
