    I read A Prayer for Owen Meany 20 years ago, too, and loved it. I think part of it was because I felt like I could hear Owen’s voice John Irving put it in ALL CAPS.The Little Prince is one of my faivorte books of all time. I read it en francais in French class in junior high and still love it for its simplicity, elegance, and truth.

    I like John Irving and have read most of his stuff. He’s kind of an absurdist Dickens, I think. Only rlealy bent.Thought I’d out myself as a sometimes reader in your comments section I enjoy it and am trying to encourage Sophie to start a kid’s version she reads a handful of books at a time, like you. I’m more of a one at a time kinda girl.kellye
