I Wasn't Even Nominated

No Bad Sex in Fiction Award for Franzen | Jacket Copy | Los Angeles Times: "The annual Bad Sex in Fiction Award was announced in London Monday, and American author Jonathan Franzen, who was in the running for passages in his novel 'Freedom,' did not make the cut. It just goes to show that the visibility afforded to Franzen's big literary bestseller may not be enough to guarantee recognition at awards time. (Franzen didn't get the National Book Award either.)

The award went to London-born writer Rowan Somerville for his novel 'The Shape of Her.'"
