David Guterson wins bad sex award for fifth novel Ed King

American writer David Guterson has won this year’s bad sex award, beating off competition from the likes of Haruki Murakami and Lee Child. Guterson won for his fifth novel, a re-imagining of the Oedipus myth titled Ed King.

Guterson was not able to collect his award in person, but accepted his victory in good grace. At a ceremony at London’s In & Out Club, Barbara Windsor announced the winner, who receives a plaster foot as a symbol of his success.

The bad sex award has been given out for nearly 20 years and celebrates books that plumb the depths of sexual description. Most winners accept graciously and claim, at least, not to be too annoyed.
