First Impressions

This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a work by a novelist who committed suicide:

"It was an uncertain spring. The weather, perpetually changing, sent clouds of blue and of purple flying over the land."

The winner receives a £25 Blackwell's voucher and
the closing date is May 22.

Entries should be sent to
