Black Lamb


Now in its 14th year of publication, this magazine was created to offer the discerning reader a stimulating selection of excellent original writing. Black Lamb Review is a literate rather than a literary publication. Regular columns by writers in a variety of geographic locations and vocations are supplemented by features, reviews, articles on books and authors, and a selection of “departments,” including an acerbic advice column and a lamb recipe.


Black Lamb welcomes submissions from new writers. Email us.

English novelist Julian Barnes (Flaubert’s Parrot, 1984) is born in Leicester in 1946.

Julian Barnes, b. January 19, 1946

Barnes’s fascination with literary style has made him both famous and suspected of artsiness by his English reading public; in France he is fêted as a genius. After thirty years of writing and a number of nominations, he finally won the Booker Prize last year, more for his career’s work than for his most recent novel.
