This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a work first published anonymously:
"In the republic of letters, there is no member of such inferior rank, or who is so much disdained by his brethren of the quill, as the humble Novelist."
The winner receives a £25 Blackwell's voucher and the closing date is February 19.
Entries, including postal address, should be sent to
Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield
London E1W 1BX
faxed to 020 7782 3300
or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The winner of last week's competition, who correctly identified Iain Banks's The Wasp Factory , is Louise Martin of London.
