Canadian Shortlisted for UK Writing Award

What does Annabel Lyon's award winning novel The Golden Mean have in common with Tom Wolfe's I Am Charlotte Simmons, A Castle in the Forest by Norman Mailer and Jonathan Littell's The Kindly Ones?

Apparently they all feature some rather bad sex writing. This is according to Literary Review, who have been awarding the Britain's Bad Sex in Fiction Awards since 1993. The Golden Mean is among this years' shortlisted titles. The other titles mentioned above are past "winners".

Annabel has posted her remarks about being nominated for this prestigious award on her blog.

Also making the 2010 shortlist (and in our collection) are:

Freedom by Jonathan Franzen;

The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas

Mr. Peanut by Adam Ross
