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.

Ford Madox Ford, b. December 17, 1873, d. 1939

fordmadoxford.jpgFord was an immensely prolific writer of novels, travelogues, history tales, poems, and art criticism, and in each genre he excelled. Throughout his life he was constantly at work on one book or another; he represents a career devoted to his art. The Good Soldier is one of the finest novels of the twentieth century, and Ford’s World War I tetralogy Parade’s End is the best writing we have on that conflict and its aftermath in Britain. A master. The list below is very selective.
