I’m very lucky to live with someone who not only cooks the most delicious curries known to man, coaxes things to grow in the dust of our tiny garden and makes the world an altogether shiner place to be, but who has also drawn the illustrations for Boy in the Tower that you can see on this very website. What you can see above is the very first drawing that Dan did when I begged him to make something when I first created the site.
We used to hold our breath and hope that by some kind of minor miracle that it would end up as the ‘real’ jacket.
Two years on, cheeks still ballooning, Random House agreed and after many more drawings and a cacophony of different colour combinations, the final cover was decided upon …
