After getting flak from everyone for it's controversial content, Tony Blair's memoirs are all set to face the most embarassing insult.- Literary Review's Bad Sex Award.books Updated: Oct 15, 2010 16:56 IST
Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair's memoirs have been nominated for the Literary Review's Bad Sex Award.
The least desirable prize in literature is conventionally awarded to novelists.
However, the judges have made an exception for the former Prime Minister and his toe-curling reminiscences about a night of passion with Cherie, reports the Telegraph.
"That night she cradled me in her arms and soothed me; told me what I needed to be told; strengthened me," he wrote in his memoir A Journey."On that night of 12 May 1994, I needed that love Cherie gave me, selfishly. I devoured it to give me strength. I was an animal following my instinct," he wrote.
A Journey was released in September 2010.
