Yesterday, The Guardian‘s Alison Flood reported on the winners of this year’s ‘Bad Sex Awards,’ which included John Updike for "Lifetime Achievement."
According to Ms. Flood, the award, which are given out by The Literary Review, was bestowed on Mr. Updike "after the American author realised the ‘unique achievement’ of four consecutive nominations for the award."
Ms. Flood writes:
Mr. Updike did not appear at an event to receive his award, thereby sparing us his acceptance speech.
