Bad Sex in Fiction Prize goes to..
Just had to share this
The editors of the Literary Review magazine said that American author Jonathan Littell won the award for describing sex as "a jolt that emptied my head like a spoon scraping the inside of a soft-boiled egg" in the best-selling novel The Kindly Ones.
The Kindly Ones is apparently a 900-page epic narrated by a fictional German officer.
