Fifty Shades of Grey and JK Rowling Snubbed for Bad Sex Award
We're sure they're not upset, but JK Rowling, for her first "adult" book, Casual Vacancy, and EL James, author of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, are not being considered for the annual Bad Sex in Fiction Award, organized by the Literary Review in England, and given to the writer responsible for the "most embarrassing passage of sexual description in a novel" published this year. The writing about sex in Casual Vacancy was apparently just not bad enough, according to the Literary Review, and the Fifty Shades books were disqualified because the award is not supposed to go to pornography or erotic literature. Well, sniff-sniff, Literary Sex Snobs! Tom Wolfe qualified, however, for parts of his new novel, Back to Blood. Read excerpts of all the bad sex right here!
