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.

Winner of the Nobel and Pulitzer Prizes and the National Book Award, Bellow transcends the label “Jewish writer” in his monumental Augie March and wildly imaginative Henderson the Rain King. He is the great American novelist of the second half of the twentieth century, a national treasure whose vivid, generous prose, crammed with intellectual energy and virile audacity, will live long after he is gone.
