First Impressions

June 21, 2001

This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a work that links the former Soviet republic of Uzbekistan with a 16th-century English Playwright:

"From jigging veins of rhyming mother-wits,

We'll lead you to the stately tent of War..."

The winner receives a £20 book token and
the closing date is September 15.

Entries should be sent to
