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 20th, 2002

British historian and travel writer William Dalrymple (In Xanadu, 1989) is born William Hamilton-Dalrymple in Scotland.

William Dalrymple, b. March 20, 1965

A brilliant historian and curator, Dalrymple has also made a name for himself with his series of travel books concerning India and the countries around it and is considered one of the West’s most insightful interpreters of that part of the world. His vivid and learned books paint a portrait quite different from that of the English colonizers, and one that is a great deal more complex.
