Bailey Cove Morning: Prayer for Owen Meany

Owen Meany is a dwarfish boy with a strange voice who accidentally kills his best friend's mom with a baseball and believes--accurately--that he is an instrument of God, to be redeemed by martyrdom. John Irving's novel, which inspired the 1998 Jim Carrey movie 'Simon Birch,' is the oddest Christian mystic novel since Flannery O'Connor's work.
