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 the 2015 Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize shortlisted Água Viva by Clarice Lispector, 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. He reads French and Spanish too. He’s also on Twitter @stefantobler.
Senior Editor Sophie Lewis has translated French literature for publishers including Pushkin Press, Saqi Books and Hesperus Press. 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. (Currently on sabbatical.)
Nicky Smalley is in charge of our publicity, marketing and sales in the UK. She’s also a translator and lover of Swedish literature, and an escaped academic – in 2014 she finished her PhD in Scandinavian Studies at UCL with a thesis rather nattily titled ‘Contemporary Urban Vernaculars in Rap, Literature and in Translation, in Sweden and the UK’. Her first book-length translation Jogo Bonito by Henrik Brandão Jönsson, a Swedish book about Brazilian football, was published by Yellow Jersey Press in 2014. She’s lived in Berlin, Stockholm and Rio. You can find her (very occasionally) on Twitter @tallnicky.
Editor Tara Tobler comes to And Other Stories from Biblioasis, where she served as Marketing and Publicity Director from 2013-14, and as Publishing and Editorial Assistant from 2011-13. Prior to this she studied English literature (M.A., McGill University, specialising in book history and small press publishing; PhD, University of Western Ontario, specialising in Renaissance poetry) and she is currently involved in independent theatre. A freelance writer, reviewer, and journalist, Tara was the recipient of the 2014 Windsor Endowment for the Arts Emerging Artist Award for Literature.
