Canadian novelist shortlisted for Bad Sex "award"

Canadian novelist Nancy Houson is up for the prestigious Bad Sex in Fiction Award for her book Infared, beating out Fifty Shades of Grey (really?) for the year’s worst-written sex scene.

The Literary Review, organizers of the prize, aim to “draw attention to the crude, badly written, often perfunctory use of redundant passages of sexual description in the modern novel, and to discourage it.”

Congrats, Nancy!
