This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from the story of a doomed marriage:
"In 1913, when Anthony Patch was twenty-five, two years were already gone since irony, the Holy Ghost of this later day, had, theoretically at least, descended upon him."
The winner receives a £25 book voucher. The closing date is September 13.
