My thoughts: Awkward Stages chronicles the growing pains of various characters.
In "Crotch Dogs," a boy recalls romantic feelings for a girl in the midst of a strange dog-crotch-licking theory.
And there may be some "Practical Uses of Voodoo in the Workplace" after all.
For me, these tales were particularly dry and banal. At some point I wondered what the deal was with these people. They were definitely undergoing some "awkward stages" here. A solid effort was evident in the writing, but even that got a little awkward sometimes.
My rating: 2 stars
