For a short period around 1994, the author piloted a number of air ambulance flights around South Africa and its neighbouring countries. During this time, he encountered circumstances that were often extraordinary … poignant, comic, embarrassing, or bizarre to an extent that merited documentation, particularly when extrapolated against an African backdrop already liberally littered with unlikely events. The manuscript is a fictionalised account of those experiences.
“Tales from the Cross” comprises 60,000 words, organised as a prologue, eight chapters, and a postscript. It follows the strange adventures of Harry Kamel, attorney and part-time air ambulance pilot, in his travels across Southern Africa on missions of mercy. Each chapter comprises a self-contained episode, although the key characters migrate from chapter to chapter across the manuscript. The central plot of each episode (but one) is essentially true, with actual identities and places disguised.
