This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a new translation of the world's earliest novel:
"In a certain reign (whose can it have been?) someone of no very great rank, among all His Majesty's Consorts and Intimates, enjoyed exceptional favour."
The winner receives a £25 Blackwell's voucher and the closing date is December 3.
Entries, including postal address, should be sent to

Last week's winner, who correctly identified Ernest Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea , was William Revell of the department of health and human sciences, London Metropolitan University.
