And Other Stories was founded in 2009 by Stefan Tobler.

And Other Stories first came to the public's attention when its first book, Down the Rabbit Hole by Juan Pablo Villalobos (translated by Rosalind Harvey), was chosen by the public to be one of the ten titles longlisted for the 2011 Guardian First Book Award.[7] It went on to make the shortlist and has also been shortlisted for the Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize.[8]

Deborah Levy's Swimming Home was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2012,[9] as well as UK Author of the Year at the Specsavers National Book Awards 2012[10] and the Jewish Quarterly-Wingate Prize 2013.[11]

And Other Stories was nominated for and subsequently won Publisher of the Year in the 2011 3:AM Magazine Awards.[12]
