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 20th, 2002

American postmodern novelist Don DeLillo (Underworld, 1997) is born in New York City in 1936.

Don DeLillo, b. November 20, 1936

delilloFor many years thought of as a cult writer, DeLillo made a sort of breakthrough with his eighth novel White Noise in 1985, followed it up with a bestseller in 1988, and settled in as a much-honored muse to such other writers as David Foster Wallace, Jonathan Franzen, Dave Eggers, and Martin Amis, all of whom exhibit their own versions of DeLillo’s encyclopedic and dark take on current events.

Suggested Reading Novels Ratner’s Star, 1976. White Noise, 1985. Libra, 1988. Mao II, 1991. Underworld, 1997.
