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.

"Extraordinary, so original, and so enriching . . . A rare creation in the somehow exhausted world of late 20th century fiction . . . Readers will come to the end feeling sorry to leave [this] richly textured and carefully wrought world."—Stephen King, Washington Post Book World

"Roomy, intelligent, exhilarating, and darkly comic . . . Dickensian in
scope . . . Quite stunning and very ambitious."—Los Angeles Times Book Review

"A lavish meditation on predestination, faith, and the unrealized forces that shape one's days."—San Francisco Chronicle

"John Irving is an abundantly and even joyfully talented storyteller."—New York Times Book Review

"Vintage Irving . . . A boisterous cast, a spirited joy."—Time

“Riveting . . . Owen Meany, drawn in bold strokes, burns in the mind’s eye–vivid, alive, beloved–long after the turning of the final page.”—United Press International
