Congrats to Tony Blair, of all people, for being nominated for the Literary Review’s annual bad sex award. The award is usually given for nauseatingly written sex scenes in fiction, and in fact Blair’s memoir is the first non-fiction ever nominated. For this, I dedicate today’s Genius Ten to Tony Blair. Leave yours in comments, or a comment about anything you want. Open thread.
