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.

In some ways a representative contemporary novelist, he went on to work on his own projects between producing work for business clients and turning out books on management — he even ghosted baseball player Dave Winfield’s autobiogrphy, which became a bestseller. Parker then produced his most important book, Anna, Ann, Annie, a moving fictional treatment of a remarkable woman’s life.

Suggested Reading Books Small Business, 1986. Winfield: A Player’s Life, 1988. Anna, Ann, Annie, 1993.
