An account of a frenzied encounter in a shower has earned US writer David Guterson the annual Bad Sex In Fiction Award for his novel Ed King, which takes the Sophoclean tragedy Oedipus Rex and transports it to late 20th Century Seattle.
On hearing of his win, Guterson said: "Oedipus practically invented bad sex, so I'm not in the least bit surprised."
Other nominees this year included Haruki Murakami's 1Q84, The Final Testament of the Holy Bible by James Frey, Chris Adrian's The Great Night and Lee Child's The Affair.
