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.

A Week in Literary History

December 27th, 2002

In 1901, English film actress and novelist Irene Handl (The Sioux, 1965) is born in London.

Irene Handl, b. December 27, 1901, d. 1987

handl*Handl is far more famous in Great Britain for her work as an actor than as a littérateuse: she appeared in more than a hundred films and also as a guest on British television comedy series. Her literary output is small — just three novels — but choice. And inimitably, deliciously unique.

Suggested Reading Novels The Sioux, 1965. The Gold Tip Pfitzer, 1966. The Green and Purple Dream, 1973.
