The Literary Review Bad Sex Prize

Perhaps one of the most interesting literary prizes given each year, and a heck of a lot more interesting than our GG’s, is the Literary Review’s Bad Sex Prize which was announced today in London.  The winner, Norman Mailer, is the first recipient to win the prize posthumously.  I’m not sure he deserved it after reading the other candidate’s work and believe that Ian McEwen should have won it for his book On Chesil Beach, which was an entire book based on an episode of bad sex.  I’m still trying to figure out why anyone published On Chesil Beach anyway… McEwen is such a fine writer, I snored through the thing…anyway, if you’re interested check out this article
