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.

Wolfe’s breathless, slangy style has put off a lot of people and prevented them from appreciating the thorough debunking he has administered to many institutions of late-twentieth-century American culture. He’s a truly trenchant and perceptive observer of human folly.
