Abstract

This article discusses the use of food as a metaphor and theme in Jay Rayner's The Oyster House Siege and Andrea Camilleri's The Snack Thief. By exploring the manner in which food and eating are related to crime and its investigation, the figure of the detective and the development of the genre itself, concepts of identity and the way they are constructed in narrative are discussed and problematized.
