Latest Posts / April 1, 2013

It was announced today that the erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey by British author E. L. James will be nominated to the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. The board said that Fifty Shades is a “vastly realized, novel as high spirited as it is intelligent . . . Like the masks of Greek drama, Fifty Shades of Grey is equal parts comedy and tragedy, but its real triumph is its emotional abundance, delivered with consummate authority and grace.” Even though some critics were not as enthusiastic about the novel, the committee chose to nominate Fifty Shades of Grey despite them. The committee said that the devised asymmetry is a genius of literary writing, the emotional toll was exasperating and that the “fascinated readers never felt short-changed by the author who took them further and further into the emotional abyss”. Further justification came on a sidebar with several of the committee member who said, off the record, that the novel also made their wives “really, really horny”.
