This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a work that is set in the Big Apple by an author who was born in the Big Easy:

"I am always drawn back to places where i have lived, the houses and the neighourhoods."

The winner receives a £20 book token and
the closing date is July 13.
