This week's First Impressions, the competition in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, comes from a sardonic observer of Mayfair folk:
"It was clearly going to be a bad crossing."
The winner receives a £20 book token and the closing date is June 23.
Entries should be sent to
Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield
London E1 9XY
faxed to 0171-782 3300

The winner of last week's competition, who identified Rachel Carson's Silent Spring , is Bernard Savage of Croydon.
