This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is taken from a semi-autobiographical book in which the author's friends, including W. H. Auden, appear under fictitious names:
"To look at, Mr Holmes was a short, stout, middle-aged man with reddish hair just beginning to get thin on the crown."
The winner receives a £25 Blackwell's voucher and the closing date is July 16.
Entries, including postal address, should be sent to
Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield
London E1W 1BX
faxed to 020 7782 3300

The winner of last week's competition, who correctly identified Franz Kafka's The Castle , is Stefanie Gottel of Kaiserslautern, Germany.
