Ex-Smith’s singer Morrissey can now add “Award winning Author” to his long list of professional accolades. His Debut novel ‘List of the Lost’ has won the Literary Review’s award for Bad Sex in Fiction.
Tn 1993, Auberonon Waugh, the editor of the Literary Review created the Bad Sex in Fiction award to discourage writers from creating “poorly written, perfunctory or redundant passages of sexual description in modern fiction.”
Here’s the passage in question that won the former Smiths frontman the award:
“At this, Eliza and Ezra rolled together into one giggling snowball of full-figured copulation, screaming and shouting as they playfully bit and pulled at each other in a dangerous and clamorous rollercoaster coil of sexually violent rotation with Eliza’s breasts barrel-rolled across Ezra’s howling mouth and the pained frenzy of his bulbous salutation extenuating his excitement as it whacked and smacked its way into every muscle of Eliza’s body except for the otherwise central zone.”
No thank you, no.
