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

November 6th, 2002

American novelist James Jones (From Here to Eternity, 1951) is born in 1921 in Robinson, Ill.

James Jones, b. November 6, 1921, d. 1977

jonesJames Jones has been seen as running second in the writing of books about World War II. But he covered the ground much more thoroughly in three books than Norman Mailer did in The Naked and the Dead, and he deserves a better reputation than he has, because his novels still repay rereading.

Suggested Reading Novels From Here to Eternity, 1951. Some Came Running, 1957. The Thin Red Line, 1962. Go to the Widow-Maker, 1967. The Merry Month of May, 1971.
