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.

The divine Marcel wrote a number of studies and translations, but his life’s work was À la recherche du temps perdu (In Search of Lost Time or Remembrance of Things Past), which was published in seven parts from 1913 to 1927, establishing him (posthumously) as one of the greatest of twentieth-century writers.

Selected Reading Remembrance of Things Past, 1927.
