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.

Miller settled happily into his role as aging satyr during the Sixties and Seventies, but before that he had helped open the floodgates in literature with his sexually explicit (and sexually fixated) novels. His penis (and his novels) aside, he is an amusing, likeable, and vivid writer who left some memorable books behind, and who spoke the plain truth far more often than not.

Suggested Reading Novels Tropic of Cancer, 1934. Black Spring, 1936. Tropic of Capricorn, 1939. The Rosy Crucifixion trilogy, 1949-60. Other writings The Colossus of Maroussi, 1941. The Air-Conditioned Nightmare, 1945. The Books in My Life, 1952. Quiet Days in Clichy, 1956. Big Sur and the Oranges of Hieronymus Bosch, 1957.
