A terrible thing has happened. I rushed home this evening to finish off the last few pages of A Prayer for Owen Meany, only to find that it has gone! Vanished! I cannot find it anywhere! I am appalled, aghast and upset.

So much so, that I had to start reading The Wasp Factory immediately to get over it. It’s a shame though, because …Owen Meany was shaping up to be a genuine 5 star read.
