John's introduction of Elis

"To my left a man who was nominated for the annual 'Bad Sex' award. The prize, given for the worst example of steamy prose, singled out a passage from his debut novel Gwent and Everything After. Describing the hero's stormy affair he wrote, "He Caerphilly unhooked her brassiere revealing Snowdonia chest. His fingers, like ramblers, trekked across her peaks before their long trek to the Rhondda." He did not attend the ceremony. "
