This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a work that concerns two women writers and a dog:
"It is universally admitted that the family from which the subject of this memoir claims descent is one of the greatest antiquity."
The winner receives a £25 Blackwell's voucher and
the closing date is July 24.
Entries should be sent to
Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield

The winner of last week's competition, who correctly identified Edgar Allan Poe's The Black Cat , is Peter Fish of the University of Wales, Bangor.
