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 29th, 2002

English novelist Henry Green (Loving, 1945) is born Henry Vincent Yorke near Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.

Henry Green, b. October 29, 1905, d. 1973

greenhenry.jpgNo less a writer than Graham Greene called Henry Vincent Yorke, who published his novels as Henry Green, the finest English novelist of his generation. Green’s gentle but stylistically innovative books were issued to little fanfare during his lifetime, but they have found a new readership in recent years and are all again in print. Loving is the most famous, but equally fascinating and satisfying are Living, Party Going, and Concluding.

Suggested Reading Novels Blindness, 1926. Living, 1929. Party Going, 1939. Caught, 1943. Loving, 1945. Back, 1946. Concluding, 1948. Nothing, 1950. Doting, 1952. Memoir Pack My Bag, 1940.
