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

October 25th, 2002

English novelist Zadie Smith (White Teeth, 2000) is born Sadie Smith in London in 1975.

Zadie Smith, b. October 25, 1975

Smith has emerged during the past decade, since her powerful and clever debut with White Teeth in 2000, as one of England’s best novelists. Although very much a “literary” writer, she is a master of every sort of language, from the refined to the most proletarian. Her opinions on writing and literature are deep, challenging, and refreshing. She’s the most brilliant young writer to have come along in many a year.

Suggested Reading Novels White Teeth, 2000. The Autograph Man, 2002. On Beauty, 2005. NW, 2012. Essays Changing My Mind, 2009. Other The Book of Other People, 2007.
