We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns — the ones we don’t know we don’t know.’ Aniruddha Bahal, an Indian investigative journalist, won Britain’s little-coveted Bad Sex in Fiction Award for a turbo-charged account of a lovers’ tryst that likens their amours to a speeding Bugatti sports car
