Food and crime - Blood on the table

From Standing Room Only, 2:26 pm on 2 September 2018

Food's role in crime writing isn't limited to being a deadly weapon in its own right - like Roald Dahl's famous short story Lamb to the slaughter. The subject's explored in a new book Blood on the Table: Essays on Food in International Crime Fiction. Authors under discussion in the essays include Stieg Larsson, Sara Paretsky, Ruth Rendell, Anthony Bourdain and Georges Simenon of Maigret fame.
