Publication of first novel.

Grahame Davies's first novel Rhaid i Bopeth Newid ('Everything Must Change')was published by Gomer in August 2004, priced at 7.99. This is the first novel by the satirical poet who came to prominence with his volume Cadwyni Rhyddid, which won the Book of the Year Prize in 2002, and which challenged the comfortable life of metropolitan media people with a combination of the satirical and the scathing. In his latest work, Rhaid i Bopeth Newid, the canvas has broadened as he examines the fate of the radical conscience in post-devolution Wales. This time, there are hard questions not just for the enemies of the Welsh language, but for its friends, and not just for politicians, but for campaigners too. The novel intercuts the story of contemporary language campaigner Meinwen Jones and that of the inter-war French philosopher and radical activist, Simone Weil. According to the prizewinning novelist Owen Martell, Rhaid i Bopeth Newid is "essential reading material for anyone who wants to get under the skin of the Welsh language debate from both sides."
