She did the painting used for his debut novel, “The Dillen Doll” in 2017. She’s sworn to secrecy regarding the details of the new one!… Speaking of The Mile Roses, they’re currently recording a new album, produced by David De La Haye and with Andy May guesting on keyboards. It should be out before the summer… Jez and Steve Tilston are booked again, for the fourth year in succession at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The date is August 21st, and the venue is the Centre for Acoustic Music as usual… No more news on Jez’s involvement in the National Theatre, as mentioned here recently, other than he will definitely be back in London for two weeks in May for further work on the project.
