This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a work much admired by Oscar Wilde:
"Judging by the few portraits preserved in the Chteau de Lourps, the Floresses des Esseintes family had been composed in olden times of sturdy campaigners with forbidding faces."
The winner receives a £25 Blackwell's voucher. The closing date is July 8.
