This week's First Impressions, the competition in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, comes from a French biologist with philosophical tendencies:
"The difference between artificial and natural objects seems immediately and unambiguously apparent to all of us."
The winner receives a £20 book token and the closing date is June 30.
Entries should be sent to
Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield
London E1 9XY

The winner of last week's competition, who identified Evelyn Waugh's Vile Bodies , is Ronald Warwick of London.
