This week's competition, in which you must identify a book from its opening sentence, is from an account of a trip with a four-legged travelling companion:
"In a little place called Le Monastier, in a pleasant highland valley fifteen miles from Le Puy, I spent about a month of fine days."
The winner receives a half-case of wine. (Please include a telephone number to arrange delivery.) The closing date is August 16.
