First Impressions

August 11, 2000

This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from an anthropologist who finds the tropics sad: " It has long been the fashion to invoke languages which lack the terms for expressing such a concept as 'tree' or 'animal', even though they contain all the words necessary for a detailed inventory of species and varieties. "

The winner receives a £25 Blackwell's voucher and
the closing date is August 15 .

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

faxed to 020 7782 3300
or emailed to theschat@thes.co.uk

The winner of last week's competition, who correctly identified Martin Amis's London Fields , is Lynne Yeates of the Open University.
