First Impressions

This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, comes from a regal-sounding work by a satirist born in Bengal: " As I write, highly civilised human beings are flying overhead, trying to kill me ."

The winner receives a £25 Blackwell's book voucher and
the closing date is June 13 .

Entries should be sent to
First Impressions
Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield
London E1W 1BX

faxed to 020 7782 3300
or emailed to

The winner of last week's competition, who correctly identified John Major's The Autobiography, is Patricia Bridges of the University of Nottingham.
