This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a work that was banned in the United States until the 1960s:
"I am living at the Villa Borghese. There is not a crumb of dirt anywhere, nor a chair misplaced. We are all alone here and we are dead."
The winner receives a £20 book token and
the closing date is March 9.
Entries should be sent to
Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield
London E1 9XY
faxed to 0171-782 3300
or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The winner of last week's competition, who correctly identified The Female Eunuch by Germaine Greer, is Andrea Rehberg of Manchester.
