In Charlotte Grimshaw’s fiction, characters come and go and then come again. Her 2009 short-story collection, Singularity, reacquainted us with old friends from her previous collection, Opportunity (2007). If Singularity was a companion piece to Opportunity, then her latest novel, Soon, is a sequel of sorts to The Night Book (2010), featuring as it does some of the cast from both short-story collections and continuing the travails and power play of New Zealand’s prime minister, David Hallwright, and his beautiful wife, Roza.
