And the 2018 Bad Sex in Fiction Award Goes to.... James Frey!

Frankly, I didn't realize that James Frey was still writing books! I've never read any of his books and don't plan to do so ever. 

However, with that said, I've been aware that there is an annual literary award for Bad Sex In Fiction. According to an article I recently read on the Independent's website, James Frey has won the 2018 Bad Sex In Fiction Award for his novel, Katerina.

According to the article titled, Bad Sex in Fiction Award: James Frey 'honoured' to win 2018 title for novel 'Katerina' by Clémence Michallon, it stated the following:
The aim of the dreaded prize, awarded since 1993, is to draw attention to poorly written, perfunctory or redundant passages of sexual description in modern, non-pornographic, non-erotic fiction.
Until my next post, happy reading! 


  1. Is it an honor or a backlash? ;-)

  2. Well, thanks for the news. I think?

    1. It's amazing what makes the news these days! I question why there is even a 'bad sex in fiction' award in the first place.
