First Impressions

April 16, 1999

This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a work by a feminist closely related to Frankenstein:

"Abodes of horror have frequently been described, and castles, filled with spectres and chimeras, conjured up by the magic spell of genius to harrow the soul, and absorb the wandering mind."

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

Entries should be sent to
First Impressions
The THES
Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield
London E1 9XY

faxed to 0171-782 3300
or emailed to theschat@thes.co.uk

The winner of last week's competition, who identified Ronald Blythe's Akenfield , is Oliver Moore from London.
