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.

Philip Roth, b. March 19, 1933

Roth has turned the admirable trick of having become one of the most respected and rewarded novelists in the world without having published any truly famous books in more than forty years. Still, all are agreed, especially the Library of America, that his many books constitute one of the great Å“uvres of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Suggested Reading Novels Goodbye, Columbus, 1959. Portnoy’s Complaint, 1969. My Life As a Man, 1974. Deception: A Novel, 1990. The Zuckerman Bound novels The Ghost Writer, 1979. Zuckerman Unbound, 1981. The Anatomy Lesson, 1983. The Prague Orgy, 1985. Autobiography The Facts: A Novelist’s Autobiography, 1988.
