Here are a couple things you may not have known about The Smiths' Steven Patrick Morrissey:
1. He wrote a novel called List of the Lost.
2. List of the Lost just won the 23rd annual Literary Review Bad Sex in Fiction Award.
The prize, presented by columnist and performer, Nancy Dell’Olio, was announced at a lavish ceremony a few days ago in London and honors bad sex writing in the literary world. To give you an idea of why Mr. Morrissey is receiving this prestigious award, please direct your attention to the following passage:
"At this, Eliza and Ezra rolled together into the one giggling snowball of full-figured copulation, screaming and shouting as they playfully bit and pulled at each other in a dangerous and clamorous rollercoaster coil of sexually violent rotation with 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."
Don't quit your day job, Moz.
