Review & Interview with Author Christoph Fischer

My interview and review with Christoph Fischer, a marvelous author.

One of my favorite reads of 2012. It is an honor to be featured at his site and receive this great review from him. I’m deeply humbled.

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of
the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for
gross indecency under Britain’s recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When news of Wilde’s conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is
the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted
by the news of Oscar Wilde’s imprisonment. It is a chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing.

Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing.

    Really great review and interview.

    • Proud is an interesting concept and not one I’m really endowed with, oddly enough. Gratitude is more what’s happening. I feel lucky and happy for it, very grateful, that for a brief moment I get to help shine a light on intolerance and in the process perhaps help a few animals. As with your stopping by, I’m grateful for it and I thank you so much.

      • I probably ought to use my words more carefully. I too am not a “proud” person as what I suppose many might think of proud. Proud to me is a thankful, head bow of gratitude for what has been allowed for me to have at that time.And the opportunity to share it and perhaps leave a imprint of joy or peace upon someone else’s heart.

      • Thank you, friend. It sounds like we are on the same page. Lovely.
