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.

September 2012 in Black Lamb

Volume 10, Number 9 — September 2012

September 1st, 2012

In September’s Black Lamb, John M. Daniel argues persuasively that The digital age eats jobs. In Leaving home, Alex Gallo-Brown reflects on New York and how he and writer Tom Bissell have profited by leaving there. Elizabeth Fournier extols the value of the vulvar steambath in A facial for your va-jay-jay (see below).

In Swift Boats, Part 2: Big Daddy, Toby Tompkins narrates a stoned and invigorating speedboat ride around Manhattan Island. Ed Goldberg reflects on the difficulties of accommodating food preferences in Eat it. In Milan, Dan Peterson inaugurates a series on life in Italy. Brad Bigelow reviews Log Book, beautifully written by a merchant sailor, in Able seaman. In Earthing, Karla Powell advocates getting in touch with oneself through nature.

We welcome the Earl of Chesterfield and William H. McGuffey into our pantheon of Honorary Black Lambs. Our yummy lamb recipe is for Lamb Forestière, or Mock Venison. In The right to privacy, Millicent Marshall argues that pictures of us ought to be our property. And Professor Avram Khan gives us the 57th of his challenging word puzzles. •
