A prayer for owen meany is the seventh novel by american writer john irvingpublished in 1989 it tells the story of john wheelwright and his best friend owen meany growing up together in a small new hampshire town during the 1950s and 1960s. A prayer for owen meany is a unique and fascinating literary fiction read i had a difficult time rating this book because although i thoroughly enjoyed this novel and found it captivating humorous and thought provoking it is bloated. Im so glad they released a prayer for owen meany a novel for kindle i would have read it eventually otherwise but i read this in the midst of multiple flights almost back to back there were minor things that kept me from giving this five stars but they are typical of john irvings writing styleall in all i loved this book. The narrative of a prayer for owen meany does not follow a perfect chronology as john pieces together the story he wants to tell owen is a bizarre child a tiny dwarf he has weirdly luminous skin and an ethereally nasal voice represented in the novel in all capital letters. So owen meany made his way to first base after being struck by pitches too once on base he was a star no one could run the bases like owen if our team could stay at bat long enough owen meany could steal home he was used as a pinch runner in the late innings too pinch runner and pinch hitter meany pinch walker meany we called him
