Publisher Stefan Tobler founded And Other Stories out of frustration at the great books not being published in English. With English and Swiss parents, he was born in the Amazon. After his first degree, he moved to Dresden for some years. He later did an MA and PhD at UEA, Norwich. He translates from Portuguese and German. His translations include Água Viva by Clarice Lispector and A Cup of Rage by Raduan Nassar (Penguin Modern Classics), the poetry collection Silence River by Antônio Moura (Arc) and Rodrigo de Souza Leão’s All Dogs are Blue (for And Other Stories). He reads French and Spanish too. He’s also on Twitter @stefantobler.
Senior Editor Sophie Lewis heads up our editorial processes and develops new initiatives from her office in Rio de Janeiro.

In 2007, she established the European office of independent publisher Dalkey Archive Press and remained sole manager there until the end of 2010. She has also worked as an editor at various literary magazines and as a literary agent.
