A penetrating and intense look at a group of powerful people in a small country - by New Zealand's finest novelist.
Charlotte Grimshaw is the author of four critically acclaimed novels, Provocation, Guilt, Foreign City and Soon. In 2000 she was awarded the Buddle Findlay Sargeson Fellowship for literature. She has been a double finalist and prizewinner in the Sunday Star-Times short story competition, and in 2006 she won the Bank of New Zealand Katherine Mansfield Award. In 2007 she won a place in the Book Council's Six Pack prize. Her story collection Opportunity won New Zealand's premier award for fiction, the Montana medal. Another collection, Singularity, was shortlisted for the 2009 Frank O'Connor International Story Prize. She lives in Auckland.
"A sly masterly novel" * Literary Review * "Full of delicious satire, Grimshaw is much lauded in New Zealand and should have entered the British consciousness long ago." -- Carla McKay * Daily Mail * "The unsettling juxtaposition of urbanity and blood-letting that characterises Grimshaw's other fiction keeps things edgy and jumpy here" * New Zealand Herald * "Grimshaw cleverly depicts a series of power struggles as her characters seek to manipulate each other, forcing the reader to question their motives." -- Anna-Maria Ssemuyaba * Times Literary Supplement * "Opening the pages of Charlotte Grimshaw's new novel Soon is akin to tilting the blinds in a dim room; the razor-like precision of her words flood your mind with crisp, searing light, such is the vivid clarity of her prose... It's a wonderful novel which explores morality and the extent to which we are responsible for our own actions." -- Steph Zajkowski * TVNZ *
