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

June 14th, 2002

English novelist and travel writer Colin Thubron (Among the Russians, 1983) is born in London in 1939.

Thubron is the ideal travel writer: observant, sympathetic, and always seeking the larger meaning of the lands he explores. His clear and evocative prose never stands in the way of the landscape or the characters he finds awaiting him, and his novels, underrated, are models of quiet sensitivity.
