But "hot" has not really a "cool" feel to it any more, does it? And here is a "LOL" to that!
You do know of the "BAD SEX AWARDS? The award is a PLASTER FOOT-as in 'putting one's foot in?'
The 2010 list includes:
- Paul Theroux for A Dead Hand-a bit surprising that, I do like Theroux's other writings.
- Nick Cave, singer, for The Death of Bunny Munro; can he 'sing' me a song about a sex craved door-to-door salesman? Is The Weeping Song an indication?
- Philip Roth for The Humbling-too humbling, perhaps, dealing with getting worn out, burnt out? At least it is shorter than his previous novels.
- Jonathan Littell for The Kindly Ones-not read
- Amos Oz for Rhyming Life and Death-perhaps not the best of this prolific generational at times satiric writer from Israel.
- John Banville for The Infinities-not read
- Anthony Quinn for The Rescue Man-shows a great 'down and dirty' actor is not necessarily a good writer, especially in a histoirical context?
- Simon Van Booy for Love Begins in -not read
- Sanjida O'Connell for The Naked Name of Love-a rather artificially conceived tale about a priest seduced by female tribal priestess in - of all places - Mongolia!
- Richard Milward for Ten Storey Love Song - Comprising just one LOOOONG paragraph and replete with graphic sex scenes. Not to everyone's taste, that way of writing.
The winner will be announced on 30 November at London's In & Out club.
He/she will proudly (?) carry home THE PLASTER FOOT!
