First Impressions

May 22, 1998

This week's First Impressions, the competition in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, comes from a classic study of "playing the game":

"Tuna Puna at the beginning of this century was a small town of about 3,000 inhabitants, situated eight miles along the road from Port of Spain, the capital of Trinidad."

The winner receives a £20 book token and the closing date is May 26.

Entries should be sent to
First Impressions
Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield
London E1 9XY

faxed to 0171-782 3300

The winner of last week's competition, who identified Elias Canetti's Crowds and Power , is George Schopflin of the School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University of London.
