“I am doomed to remember a boy with a wrecked voice­ not because of his voice, or because he was the smallest person I ever knew, or even because he was the instrument of my mother’s death, but because he is the reason I believe in God; I am a Christian because of Owen Meany.” Irving’s modern American classic explodes onto the stage in a paradoxical challenge to memory, life, God, and prayer.
