This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a celebrated memoir:
"I hope I will be able to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to confide in anyone, and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support."
- Entries, including postal address, should be sent to First Impressions, The Times Higher, 26 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4HQ, faxed to 020 3194 3300 or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The winner receives a £25 book voucher. The closing date is December 3.
Last week's winner, who identified Ken Kesey's Sometimes a Great Notion, was Jenny Mallinson of Hull.
