March 6, 2008

This week’s competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a roman à clef:

"It was a queer, sultry summer, the summer they electrocuted the Rosenbergs, and I didn't know what I was doing in New York."

Entries, including your postal address, should be sent to First Impressions, Times Higher Education, 26 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4HQ, faxed to 020 3194 3300 or emailed to chat@timeshighereducation.co.uk

The winner receives a £25 book voucher. The closing date is 12 March 2008.

The winner of last week’s competition, who identified The River Why by David James Duncan, is Zahrah Jassim of South Shields, Tyne and Wear
