Just in case you haven't heard, this year's winner of the Literary Review's Bad Sex Award went to Nancy Huston for Infrared. According to Amol Rajan of The Independent: Sex Doesn't Get Worse than This.
Last year, David Guterson won it for 'an over-reliance on coy terms such as "family jewels", "back door" and "front parlour".' The year before, AA Gill found the news that he was odds-on favourite to win 'irritating' and didn't turn up to collect this prestigious prize for "most embarrassing passage of sexual description in a novel."
This year's winner beat off stiff (oo-err) competition from the likes of J.K. Rowling and E.L. James to clinch it with her 'vivid imagery.' Congratulations!
