First Impressions

October 26, 2007

This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentences, is from a dark tale of food, travel and murder:

"This is not a conventional cookbook. Though I should straight away attach a disclaimer to my disclaimer and say that I have nothing but the highest regard for the traditional collection of recipes, arranged by ingredient under broad, usually geographical, categories."

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 29.

The winner of last week's competition, who identified The Dog of the South by Charles Portis is Jacqui McCarthy of Southport.
