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.

Gerald Basil Edwards is a one-novel writer, and even that was published against his wishes. But what a wonderful novel! The Book of Ebenezer Le Page, which appeared five years after the author’s death, is a rich throwback to an earlier age of novel-writing, with vivid characters, a million interrelated stories, and, coincidentally, one of our only fictional portraits of the isle of Guernsey. This is one of our very favorite books of all time.

Suggested Reading Novel The Book of Ebenezer Le Page, 1981.
