London, November 8: Folk singer Woody Guthrie's debut novel 'House of Earth' has been nominated for 2013's Literary Review Bad Sex in Fiction Award, it has been revealed.

The singer's novel is going to compete against Susan Choi's 'My Education' and Rupert Thomson's 'Secrecy', the BBC reported.

The award, which recognises the "most egregious passage of sexual description" in a novel, nominated the book for its phrases like "her body melted into a single note of music to the sky".

Judges have revealed that they "agonized" over a passage from Helen Fielding's new 'Bridget Jones: Mad about The Boy', but felt it did not make the cut.

The full list of nominees features 'The Last Banquet' by Jonathan Grimwood, 'Motherland' by William Nicholson, Manil Suri's 'The City of Devi', 'The Victoria System' by Eric Reinhardt and 'The World Was All Before Them' by Matthew Reynolds. (ANI)
