Winner: Bad Sex in Fiction Award

Two weeks ago, we listed for you the finalists in the UK Literary Review's Bad Sex in Fiction contest.

The bad sex prize was established "to draw attention to the crude and often perfunctory use of redundant passages of sexual description in the modern novel – and to discourage it".

So the winner is...
Infrared by Nancy Huston

The author has said she hoped the win would "incite thousands of British women to take close-up photos of their lovers' bodies in all states of array and disarray."

Congratulations, Nancy, for winning the "most dreaded literary prize".
