This week's First Impressions, the competition in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, comes from a one-day wonder:
"Stately, plump Buck Mulligan came from the stairhead, bearing a bowl of lather on which a mirror and razor lay crossed."
The winner receives a £20 book token and the closing date is February 10.
Entries should be sent to
Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield
London E1 9XY

The winner of last week's competition, who identified Jean-Jacques Rousseau's Emile , is Mike Hughes, of the department of English, Edge Hill University College.
