And Other Stories: reading Latin American fiction

And Other Stories is a new grassroots publisher of quality, adventurous writing, guided by readers, writers and translators.
It will publish its first books in spring 2011, and is dedicated to contemporary international fiction. It has grown out of the sense that the best books often aren't translated.. so we might as well do it!

In this group, we discuss Spanish-language Latin American books we've heard great things about, with a view to seeing if And Other Stories might be the place to publish them. But it's also just about enjoying these books - we're happy to try to find other publishers for ones we like.

At the moment we're planning to look at books by Guadelupe Nettel, Norma Lazo, Andres Neuman, Carlos Gamerro, Victoria de Stefano and Ricardo Waale. Any more suggestions? The current list is here:

Most of these books can be lent, just ask. A lovely story by [Guadalupe Nettel], 'Bonsai', is available in Rosalind Harvey's English translation. Nettel is also available in French, and other writers here are translated into languages other than English, for whoever doesn't read Spanish.

Feel free to join us!
