Who was Mary Lamb?
Mary Lamb certainly wasn't the little girl who brought her snow white lamb to school. This little Lamb was an English writer who suffered a breakdown and wound up stabbing her mother to death with a carving knife. Amazingly, after this act of violence, Lamb was released into the care of her younger brother, Charles. The brother and sister remained together for the next 40 years writing together. Read her story in The Devil Kissed Her: The Story of Mary Lamb.
You'll never hear that childhood song the same again.
