I had to read the story just to see what all the fuss was about. Purely from a literary perspective, I found the story to be as clumsy and awkward as the night the stories two protagonists attempted a bout of drunken sex. Speaking of the sex part, I don’t believe I’ve personally had such an awkward experience as described in the story, since I was 15 and was still going through the throws of an extended puberty. If it had been written at least as well as the script to the 1982 movie “Cat People”, starring Nastassja Kinski, I probably wouldn’t have been so harsh. (I hope readers understand sarcasm).
