The Bad Sex In Fiction Award 2014 Shortlist Announced: Read Passages From The Offending Books


Literary Review Magazinne has announced its shortlist for this year's annual Bad Sex In Fiction Award prize - whose purpose, it says, "is to draw attention to poorly written, perfunctory or redundant passages of sexual description in modern fiction, and to discourage passages like this:

"He felt the improbable weight of her eyelash with his own; he kissed the slight, rose-coloured trench that remained from her knicker elastic, running around her belly like the equator line circling the world. As they lost themselves in the circumnavigation of each other, there came from nearby shrill shrieks that ended in a deeper howl."

- 'The Narrow Road to the Deep North' by Richard Flanagan
