Morrissey Disregards Bad Sex Award | Music News
Morrissey released his debut novel “List Of The Lost” earlier this year with it receiving severe criticism when it was first released. The Literary Review’s Bad Sex Award honours the “most egregious passage of sexual description in a work of fiction” annually. Morrissey said to Uruguayan newspaper El Observador that it is “best to maintain an indifferent distance” from the award, “because there are too many good things in life to let these repulsive horrors pull you down“. He continued by saying “I have many enemies and their biggest motivation, as you know, is to try to use all your achievements against you“.
An excerpt from the novel: “Eliza’s breasts barrel-rolled across Ezra’s howling mouth and the pained frenzy of his bulbous salutation extenuating his excitement as it whacked and smacked its way into every muscle of Eliza’s body except for the otherwise central zone“.
