f(Dagbladet.no): Prisen for dårligste sexbeskrivelse i en skjønnlitterær bok ble delt ut under en overdådig tilstelning i London.
Giles Coren vant prisen for sin roman «Winkler», nærmere bestemt dette utdraget:
And he came hard in her mouth and his dick jumped around and rattled on her teeth and he blacked out and she took his dick out of her mouth and lifted herself from his face and whipped the pillow away and he gasped and glugged at the air, and he came again so hard that his dick wrenched out of her hand and a shot of it hit him straight in the eye and stung like nothing he\'d ever had in there, and he yelled with the pain, but the yell could have been anything, and as she grabbed at his dick, which was leaping around like a shower dropped in an empty bath, she scratched his back deeply with the nails of both hands and he shot three more times, in thick stripes on her chest. Like Zorro. Her kan du lese flere av utdragene.
- Bare ironi
Også storheter som John Updike og Salman Rushdie var nominert.
Prisen deles ut av magasinet The Literary Review for 13. året på rad. Den er kjent som den prisen britiske forfattere frykter mest.
Amerikanske Tom Wolfe fikk prisen i fjor for romanen «I am Charlotte Simmons».
Juryen beskrev Wolfes prosa som «redselsfull og kjedelig».
Senere sa Wolf at sexbeskrivelsen han vant prisen for, bare var ironi.
