Congratulations (?) to James Frey, who has won this year’s bad sex in fiction award.

Several scenes in his novel Katerina struck the judges as worthy of the (dis)honor, according to the Guardian, where you can also read some key excerpts.

(Of course, be warned that the material is most definitely of an adult nature.)

Frey seems to have taken the news in stride, issuing the following statement: “I am deeply honored and humbled to receive this prestigious award. Kudos to all my distinguished fellow finalists — you have all provided me with many hours of enjoyable reading over the last year.”

Other authors who were nominated this year include Haruki Murakami and Gerard Woodward; past winners include Norman Mailer, Tom Wolfe, and Morrissey — the latter two of which refused to accept the award.
