David Guterson wins Bad Sex Award for Ed King


American novelist David Guterson, famous for his Pacific Northwest novel Snow Falling on Cedars, has won the Literary Review’s bad sex in fiction award for his latest novel, Ed King.

The Guardian reports he had “over-reliance on coy terms such as ‘family jewels’, ‘back door’ and ‘front parlour.’” Ed King is a modern interpretation of the Oedipus myth and it sounds like he took the news in good humor.
