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
Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield
London E1 9XY

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