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 25th, 2002

The Irish Catholic novelist (the first name is pronounced Bree-an) published books under three different names but he used his own for his “literary” novels and his screenplays. The theme of a Catholic priest losing his faith occurs in several books, but most important is the heartfelt and yet dry-eyed emotion in his tales. A lyrical, lovely writer.

Suggested Reading Novels The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne, 1955. The Feast of Lupercal, 1957. The Luck of Ginger Coffey, 1960. I Am Mary Dunne, 1968. The Temptation of Eileen Hughes, 1981.
