First Impressions

October 19, 2007

This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a comic quest:

"My wife Norma had run off with Guy Dupree and I was waiting for the credit card billings to come in so I could see where they had gone."

Entries, including postal address, should be sent to First Impressions, The Times Higher, 26 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4QH, faxed to 020 3194 3300 or emailed to theschat@thes.co.uk

The winner receives a £25 book voucher. The closing date is October 22.

The winner of last week's competition, who identified Hugh Thomas's Rivers of Gold: The Rise of the Spanish Empire , was Gavin O'Toole of Carshalton Beeches, Surrey.
