Read full description of the books A Prayer for Owen Meany:John Irving’s A Prayer for Owen Meany is the inspiring modern classic that introduced two of the author’s most unforgettable characters, boys bonded forever in childhood: the stunted Owen Meany, whose life is touched by God, and the orphaned Johnny Wheelwright, whose life is touched by Owen. From the accident that links them to the mystery that follows them—and the martyrdom that parts them—the events of their lives form a tapestry of fate and faith in a novel that is Irving at his irresistible best.
