•  Yeah, this is not a very sexy line. Jonathan Littel won the Literary Review’s “Bad Sex In Fiction Award” for a passage from his award-winning book, The Kindly Ones. Despite the Literary Review referring to the novel as  a “work of genius,” they took him to task for the following line: “I came suddenly, a jolt that emptied my head like a spoon scraping the inside of a soft-boiled egg.” Yowsers. That’s not sexy at all. No way he is ever going to get a letter published in Penthouse Forum. [Yahoo!/Reuters]
