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.

A Week in Literary History

March 8th, 2002

In 1859, Scottish author Kenneth Grahame (The Wind in the Willows, 1908) is born in Edinburgh.

Kenneth Grahame was not a happy man in his life or in his career: he wrote all his life and had success with only one immortal book. One hopes that the fact that The Wind in the Willows has brought so much happiness to so many people is some comfort to his soul.

Suggested Reading Dream Days, 1898. The Wind in the Willows, 1908.
