First Impressions

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.
