Grace, Tamar and Laszlo the Beautiful

By Deborah Kay Davies
Published by Parthian Books Ltd
ISBN 978-1905762-903
August 2009


Part novel, part fantasy and part social history. More than anything it tells dark, universal tales about how utterly strange it is to learn to be human.

Deborah Kay Davies brings us the raw, honest, disturbing but somehow touching story of two sisters and their real relationship – the good, the bad and the very ugly.

Author's Biography

A girl from the eastern valleys of South Wales (Pontypool), Deborah Kay Davies failed her Eleven Plus and went to Secondary Modern School. She faced the challenges many valleys children encounter, and mentally filed them away for her writing. She is a three-time winner in the Rhys Davies competition. The only year she didn’t win was the year she didn’t enter – because her partner was a judge.


Davies's first book was a volume of poetry and her gift for imagery is is evident here: eating a scallop is described as "like eating a virgin mermaid's buttock". - Brandon Robshaw, Independent on Sunday

Fantastic autobiographical stories set in south-east Wales, exploring sibling rivalry through evocatively authentic voices.
