A Prayer for Owen Meany

PS 3559.R8P7 1990
John Irving “If you care about something you have to protect it; If you’re lucky enough to find a way of life you love, you have to find the courage to live it.”(1)

Based on the town of Exeter in New Hampshire, Irving’s novel was not only a revelation for its confident treatment of spirituality, but it had also produced one of the most unforgettable characters in recent memory. Short, precocious and magnanimous, Meany helps protagonist John Wheelwright come to terms with the death of his mother (which Owen causes, accidentally) while courageously defying the limitations most impose upon him.
