One more awards post for today: the shortlist for the Literary Review’s Bad Sex in Fiction (dis)honor came out today.
The River Capture, by Mary Costello.
The Office of Gardens and Ponds, by Didier Decoin.
City of Girls, by Elizabeth Gilbert.
Pax, by John Harvey.
The Electric Hotel, by Dominic Smith.
Organizers are apparently still accepting nominations, though the winner (or loser, depending on your perspective) will be revealed December 2.
We’ll keep this post clean, but if you’d like to see examples of what made readers cringe, you can head to the Guardian.
Last year’s winner was Katarina by James Frey.
