Book launch and reading from “African August” by Llandeilo resident author Christoph Fischer

African August” is based on Christoph Fischer’s contact with the African Continent as flight attendant and is a cross between a travel adventure, thriller and thoughtful reflection on the limits of outsider intervention.

A thirty something lawyer from the UK, Timothy decides to drop out of the the rat race and do some good on the African continent instead. His motivation is governed by the notion of making his pounds stretch in a relatively cheap environment and to finally experience the real world. Soon he finds that this may not as easy as his naive dreams have led him to believe.


In the US the book will be part of a charity, multi-author e-book box set in aid of  Santa Paula No Kill Animal Rescue Center in California

All proceeds of the paperback will go to M-Lisada Org. Kampala a charity supporting former street children in Kamapla, Uganda.


Christoph Fischer was born in Germany, near the Austrian border, as the son of a Sudeten-German father and a Bavarian mother. Not a full local in the eyes and ears of his peers he developed an ambiguous sense of belonging and moved to Hamburg in pursuit of his studies and to lead a life of literary indulgence. In 1993 he moved to the UK and now lives in Llandeilo in West Wales. He and his partner have several Labradoodles to complete their family.christoph

Christoph worked for the British Film Institute, in Libraries, Museums and for an airline. His first historical novel, ‘The Luck of The Weissensteiners’,  was published in November 2012 and downloaded over 60,000 times on Amazon. He has released several more historical novels, including “In Search of A Revolution” and “Ludwika“. He also wrote some contemporary family dramas and thrillers, most notably “Time to Let Go” and “The Healer“. His latest novel, “The Body in the Snow” is a cost murder mystery set in his new home of Carmarthenshire.

    Wishing you huge success with this one, Christoph. Hugs!

    […] Since the box set isn’t scheduled to be released as paperback at all, I will now release the paperback version separately and launch it at the Llandeilo Lit Fest. […]
