First Impressions

五月 18, 2001

This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a work by a novelist who committed suicide:

"It was an uncertain spring. The weather, perpetually changing, sent clouds of blue and of purple flying over the land."

The winner receives a £25 Blackwell's voucher and
the closing date is May 22.

Entries should be sent to

First Impressions
Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield
London E1W 1BX

faxed to 020 7782 3300
or emailed to

The winner of last week's competition, who correctly identified Ernest Hemingway's Fiesta ( The Sun Also Rises ), is Lauri Ramey of the University of Luton.
