This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from an unfinished novel whose protagonist is loosely based on an MGM producer: " Though I haven't ever been on the screen I was brought up in the picture ."
The winner receives a £25 Blackwells voucher and
the closing date is December 20 .
Entries should be sent to:
Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield
London E1W 1BX,
faxed to 020-7782 3300
or emailed to email@example.com
The winner of last week's competition, who correctly identified J. B. Priestly's The Good Companions , was Dr Joanne Mosley of Abingdon, Oxfordshire.
