Eleven-year-old Owen Meany, playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire, hits a foul ball and kills his best friend's mother. Owen doesn't believe in accidents; he believes he is God's instrument. What happens to Owen after that 1953 foul is both extraordinary and terrifying. At moments a comic, self-deluded victim, but in the end the principal, tragic actor in a divine plan, Owen Meany is the most heartbreaking hero John Irving has yet created. 

This is a used copy in acceptable condition with some wear, including the beginnings of a tear on the front cover, some creasing and yellowing to the pages.

By John Irving. Mass market paperback. 617 pages. Published by Harper Collins, 2012.
