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.

A Week in Literary History

August 15th, 2002

American novelist Edna Ferber (Show Boat, 1926) is born in 1885 in Kalamazoo, Mich.

It is too easy to dismiss Ferber as a writer of movies, although some of her works became famous through that medium. In fact, she produced more than thirty book-length projects during her career, which started when she was a member of the famed Algonquin Round Table of wits and writers in the 1920s.

Suggested Reading Novels Show Boat, 1926. Giant, 1952.
