This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, comes from a novelist who is interested in wind, sand and stars:
"Once, when I was six years old I saw a magnificent picture in a book, called True Stories from Nature, about the primeval forest."
The winner receives a Blackwell's £25 voucher and
the closing date is May 29.

The winner of last week's competition, who correctly identified Virginia Woolf's The Years , is Anthony Rosie of the School of Social Science and Law, Sheffield Hallam University.
