And Other Stories is a literary publishing house that works on the principle that great new books will be heard about and read thanks to the combined intelligence of a number of people: editors, readers, translators, critics, literary promoters and academics. Its list of diverse fiction already encompasses successes such as Deborah Levy's Swimming Home, shortlisted for the 2012 Man Booker Prize. If you're yet to discover And Other Stories' publishing, then our offer is a great place to start, featuring three hand-picked titles for just £18, saving 40% off RRP.
Down the Rabbit Hole, shortlisted for the 2011 Guardian First Book award, tells the story of Tochtli, who lives in a palace crammed with luxury, funded by his drug baron father's illicit dealings and shared with hit men, dealers, and the odd corrupt politician or two. It is a masterful and darkly comic tale of a delirious journey to grant Tochtli his biggest wish.
In Lightning Rods, failing salesman Joe comes up with a jaw-dropping plan that will stamp out sexual harassment in the workplace and make his fortune. Win-win? As Joe turns his life around, this sharp, uproarious satire takes us to the very top of corporate America…
Finally, in Open Door, we accompany our heroine, a young veterinary assistant, to a small town in the Argentinian Pampas following the disappearance of her partner. Embarking on a new life in the country, she finds herself living with an ageing ranch-hand and courted by an official looking into her missing lover. She might settle down, although a local girl is also irresistible ... This evocative, atmospheric book makes a quiet case for the possibility of finding contentment in unexpected places and with unexpected people.
