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.

Author profile

December 1st, 2002

Andrew Darrel grew up in southern Hampshire and South London. He left the UK in 1978, initially intending to spend only a year or so abroad, making his living temporarily by teaching English as a foreign language. He never really took to teaching but found he enjoyed living abroad, so he never went back home. Twenty-one years later, thanks to the generosity of King Fahad ibn Abdulaziz, he had saved up enough to be able to give up teaching, and indeed to give up full-time work entirely, for a while at least. In those twenty-one years he had worked in different parts of Italy and in Egypt and Saudi Arabia; he had spent a year-and-a-half studying in Portland, Ore., and had stayed for various periods in self-declared tax exile in central Spain. At the beginning of 2000 he returned to Rome, and is still there, working part-time in a high school library and a bookshop, and talking all the time about moving on to somewhere better. His Black Lamb column is called Roman Annals.
