Editorial Reviews

Review

'May justly join the classic American list' Anthony Burgess, Observer 'So extraordinary, so original, and so enriching' Stephen King, Washington Post 'I believe it to be a work of genius some of the most fascinating prose written in fiction today' Jan Morris, Independent 'Intelligent, exhilarating and darkly comic Dickensian in scope Quite stunning' Los Angeles Times --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

“John Irving, who writes novels in the unglamorous but effective way Babe Ruth used to hit home runs, deserves a medal not only for writing this book but for the way he has written it. . . . A Prayer for Owen Meany is a rare creation in the somehow exhausted world of late twentieth-century fiction—it is an amazingly brave piece of work . . . so extraordinary, so original, and so enriching. . . . Readers will come to the end feeling sorry to leave [this] richly textured and carefully wrought world.” —Stephen King
