Brighton Rock & Sausage Rolls?

Graham Greene was fond of hiding meanings and private jokes in his novels and stories, part of his habitually secretive nature perhaps.  It is a well-known fact that his 1969 novel Travels With My Aunt, for example, is littered with references to the people he knew – all carefully disguised by the novelist’s hand. Now we know that Greene was very fond of genuine English sausages, but sausage rolls? Why did he keep referring to them in Brighton Rock? The meaty kind, of course, not the latest vegan alternatives. If you are curious, please use the link below to this excellent blog by Barry Taylor who has some theories on the subject.
