God's Gym is the first story collection in more than a decade from one of our most celebrated American authors. A two-time winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award and a finalist for the National Book Award, John Edgar Wideman is a master of the short story. He was awarded the prestigious Rea Award for accomplishment in the short story form, and these electric, mesmerizing stories have appeared in numerous magazines, including Harper's Magazine, GQ, Playboy, Esquire, Callalloo, and Fiction, as well as in The Best American Short Stories. God's Gym features stories that explore issues of strength and faith, fate and belief. In the first story, Wideman writes, "My mother believes in a god whose goodness would not permit him to inflict more troubles than a person can handle. A god of mercy and salvation. A sweaty, bleeding god presiding over a fitness class in which his chosen few punish their muscles. She should wear a T-shirt: God's Gym." Here are stories that chart the thorny relationships between genders, races, and friends, stories that break the rules and expose the turning points of life for what they really are.… (mere)

God's Gym is a book of short stories by John Edgar Wideman. The stories are told from the perspective of a variety of African American men in different circumstances. All the stories were told in the stream of consciousness style. While they were well done and made the reader think, I am not of fan of stream of consciousness. I enjoy short stories in general, but prefer those that tell a story rather than just the thoughts of a character in a situation. While this anthology was not a good fit for my tastes, it was interesting to get inside the heads of some of the characters. If you enjoy reading stream of consciousness style stories, I would definitely recommend you give God's Gym a try. ( )

I like reading short stories on my KIndle, and this one was readily available. So I checked it out. I could tell I wasn't going to like it from the first story,but I stuck with it and read quite a few of the stories before I gave up on it. Wideman's writing is somewhat incoherent, and I didn't have the time or interest to figure out what he was trying to say. The main message I got from his stories is: poor me. ( )
