Bad Sex Nominee

From HERE, it is reported that Mr. Cave has been nominated for the Bad Sex Award.

Direct quote from The Guardian's article:
On a shortlist of 10, singer Nick Cave was picked for his second novel The Death of Bunny Munro, about a sex-obsessed door-to-door salesman. "Frankly we would have been offended if he wasn't shortlisted," said Anna Frame at his publisher Canongate.


  1. Yeah, good, I don't think it was supposed to be turning people on.

  2. That's awesome. Bunny Munro has a whole lot of bad sex scenes. Of course, the difference being they are intentionally bad in order to be consistent with the character and feel of the story :D
