    Writer Norman Mailer, a giant of the American literary scene and twice a winner of the Pulitzer Prize, was posthumously given the Bad Sex in Fiction Award on Tuesday.

    "We are sure that he would have taken the prize in good humour," the judges said of the award to Mailer, who died on Nov 10 of kidney failure at the age of 84.
Yes, indeed. Of course, when Mailer was "in good humour" someone often got punched in the face.

Curiously, the article is accompanied by a photo of someone very much NOT Norman Mailer.
