Tibor Fischer (1723 words)


Born in Stockport in 1959, Tibor Fischer grew up in Bromley, South London. His parents were professional athletes in Hungary until they left their home country during the political turmoil of 1956. Fischer attended Cambridge University, where he studied Latin and French, and later worked for different media companies in England and, from 1988 to 1990, during the exciting Fall-of-the-Wall period, in Budapest. Fischer’s work relies substantially on various forms of comic writing. However, the author frequently combines his talent for absurd situations and farcical-grotesque dialogue with critical if underhand commentary about genuine social ills.

Fischer’s career as a writer began with the publication of Under the Frog
