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

September 4th, 2002

Novelist William Cooper (Scenes from Married Life, 1961) is born in England in 1910.

Cooper, born Harry Summerfield Hoff almost a century ago and now almost forgotten, published prolifically in the Fifties after years as a schoolmaster and English civil servant. His series of four novels with Joe Lunn as the protagonist are well worth revisiting. They’re funny, wise, and gently satiric of life in England after the War and into the Eighties.

Suggested Reading Novels Scenes from Provincial Life, 1950. Scenes from Married Life, 1961. Scenes from Metropolitan Life, 1982. Scenes from Later Life, 1983. Scenes from Life and Death, 1999.
