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.

Hemingway lived just long enough to parody himself and call into question his undeniable gifts, which would never have been challenged if he had stopped writing after The Sun Also Rises, In Our Time, A Farewell to Arms, and the wonderful short stories. It’s not his fault that those who copied him couldn’t do it as well as he could. An imperishable master.
