ninety-nine stories of GOD

ninety-nine stories of GOD by Joy Williams  220 pp.

This is a case of don't judge a book by its title. Williams has created ninety-nine vignettes with some kind of connection to God. A couple seemed to be a bit of a stretch. Some are just a couple sentences, others a couple pages. One is a diagram for a labyrinth to be painted onto a tarp. Random people are represented including Golda Meir, Tolstoy, Kafka, the Unibomber, and O.J. Simpson. God appears as a character in a few of the selections. Dogs also play a part. The vignettes run the gamut from sad to humorous to just odd.
