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 14th, 2002

Book-seller and publisher Sylvia Beach is born in Baltimore, 1887.

Sylvia Beach, b. March 14, 1887, d. 1962

Sylvia Beach’s English language bookstore and lending library Shakespeare and Company opened in Paris in 1919 and almost immediately became a gathering place for expatriate writers as various as Ford Madox Ford and Ernest Hemingway. Beach published James Joyce’s Ulysses in 1922 when no other publisher would touch it.

Suggested Reading Memoir Shakespeare and Company, 1956.
