First Impressions

This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is by a pseudonymous author whose burlesque on British chivalry is also a satire on modern technology and social thought:

"It was in Warwick Castle that I came across the curious stranger whom I am going to talk about."

The winner receives a £20 book token and
the closing date is September 8.

Entries should be sent to
First Impressions

The winner of last week's competition, who identified Gogol's Dead Souls , is Dr Edelweisse Thornley from Glasgow.
