 Christophern worked as a private tutor in Berlin and elsewhere while writing the novel Mr Norris Changes Trains (1935) and a short novel called Goodbye to Berlin (1939), often published together in a collection called The Berlin Stories.

In 1932 he met and fell in love with a young German man named Heinz Neddermeyer.[5]
