  • A Prayer for Owen Meany


    A Prayer for Owen Meany is the story of John Wheelwright and his childhood friend, Owen Meany. It chronicles the aging John's memories of Owen's life and death, including the other boy's fierce intellect, rapt faith in God, and conviction that he himself was an instrument of God's will. Owen, enrolled in the military after his expulsion from high school, predicts his own death while defending Vietnamese children, an event that comes to pass in an unexpected manner at a stateside airport. John recalls Owen as a miraculous man.
