BOOK TITLE: A Prayer for Owen Meany


AUTHOR: John Irving


GENERAL SYNOPSIS: Coming of Age story around friendship that endures tragedy, secrets and leaving childhood behind.

HOW WAS THIS BOOK SIGNIFICANT FOR YOU? HOW WILL IT AFFECT YOUR WRITING?

This is my favorite book of all time, not only because of the writing style but because of the message that it carries. My writing has mimicked the style, using flashbacks and first person narrative.
