John Irving’s poignant, provocative, funny, and inspiring modern classic, A Prayer for Owen Meany, is the story of two boys eternally bonded in childhood by a bizarre accident: the abruptly orphaned Johnny Wheelwright and the diminutive Owen Meany, the only child of a New Hampshire granite quarrier. Owen believes he is God’s instrument on earth, and he is right.

Linked by tragedy and mystery, they make their way together through the extraordinary events of their lives toward the unavoidable martyrdom that must ultimately separate them-in an unforgettable novel of destiny, devotion, and faith that is John Irving at his very best.
