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.

February 11th, 2002

In 1915, English travel writer Patrick Leigh Fermor (A Time of Gifts, 1977) is born in London.

Fermor has assumed the well-earned mantle of the greatest living travel writer. His books are unique in ranging widely over the culture and distinguishing characteristics of wherever he goes, and his erudite yet lambent style make him a writer to savor for the language alone.

Suggested Reading The Traveller’s Tree, 1950. The Violins of Saint-Jacques, 1953. A Time to Keep Silence, 1957. Mani – Travels in the Southern Peloponnese, 1958. Roumeli, 1966. A Time of Gifts, 1977. Between the Woods and the Water, 1986. Three Letters from the Andes, 1991. Words of Mercury, 2003.
