Morrissey‘s debut novel, List Of The Lost, has won this year’s Bad Sex in Fiction award.

The Literary Review cited an “ecstatic scene” in the novel, which was published in the UK on September 24.

The BBC cites lines including “(They) pulled at each other in a dangerous and clamorous rollercoaster coil.”


Other recipients of the award, which was launched in 1993, include Melvyn Bragg, Norman Mailer and AA Gill.

Morrissey – who did not attend the award ceremony – faced stiff competition on a shortlist which included George Pelecanos‘s The Martini Shot, Joshua Cohen’s Book of Numbers and Erica Jong’s Fear of Dying.

The January 2016 issue of Uncut is now on sale in the UK – featuring Paul Weller, David Bowie, Best Of 2015, Roger Waters, Father John Misty, Pere Ubu, Robert Forster, Natalie Prass, James Brown, Bruce Springsteen, Sunn O))), Jonny Greenwood, Arthur Lee & Love, Neil Young, Janis Joplin and more.
