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.

A Week in Literary History

July 6th, 2002

English novelist Hilary Mantel (Wolf Hall, 2009) is born in 1952 in Glossop, Derbyshire.

After a quarter-century of novel-writing, Mantel finally hit the jackpot — and found her sweet spot — with the first of her Henry VIII/Thomas Cromwell historical novels, Wolf Hall, in 2009. Its sequel, published three years later, is just as good; one waits eagerly for the third installment.

Suggested Reading Novels Every Day is Mother’s Day, 1985. Wolf Hall, 2009. Bring Up the Bodies, 2012.
