This week's First Impressions, the competition in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, comes from the observations of a Danish police reporter in New York:
"Long ago it was said that 'one half of the world does not know how the other half lives'."
The winner receives a £20 book token and the closing date is May 12.
Entries should be sent to
Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield
London E1 9XY
faxed to 0171-782 3300

The winner of last week's competition, who identified Rachel Carson's The Sea Around Us , is James Connelly of Southampton.
