"A Prayer for Owen Meany" by John Irving

  • Aug 28, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Our discussion of The Tin Drum was such a success, it seemed only natural to follow it up with John Irving's homage to Gunter Grass' classic novel.  Both tell their stories through diminutive protagonists with preternatural abilities, however, while Grass examines such issues as morality and personal responsibility, Irving focuses on religion and spirituality.   It promises to provide another fascinating night of conversation.

    Another great meeting. It is so nice to be able to discuss differing points of view and impressions. This is such a great group of people.

    Always interesting to hear other points of view, even if they differ from mine.

    Hoping the next pick will be under 300 pages so I can read it in time for the meeting (or pick the longer ones farther out in advance, perhaps?) Have fun!

    If you knew when you were going to die, would you and how would you live your life differently?
