Guardian piece on: Small presses growing translated fiction’s readership

Literature in Translation by Independent Presses

And Other Stories Publisher, Stefan Tobler, is interviewed and quoted in a wonderful piece on how small presses are growing the market for literature in translation by Joanna Walsh in the Guardian – plus the fabulous Deborah Levy also gets a mention!

“A writer who not only hasn’t been published in English before, but doesn’t have friends in the Anglophone literary world and maybe doesn’t even speak English, will have a few challenges.”​ Stefan Tobler

‘Subscribers put their trust in the reputation each publishing house has developed for a carefully-selected, innovative list … And Other Stories goes one step further towards reader/publisher integration. A “grassroots social enterprise”, it organises groups of readers worldwide, who are “instrumental in unearthing a number of great books to publish … Thanks to your discussion online and in person,” says the publisher’s website, “new books will make it into English”.’​
