This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a work by a gothic novelist with a penchant for the macabre:
"For the most wild yet most homely narrative which I am about to pen, I neither expect nor solicit belief."
The winner receives a £25 Blackwell's voucher and
the closing date is July 17.
Entries should be sent to
Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield
London E1 9XY

The winner of last week's competition, who correctly identified Iris Murdoch's The Sandcastle , is Michael Fogg of Ely, Cambridgeshire.
