narrative
used in A Prayer for Owen Meany

2 uses
  • Although he did not (at the time) delineate the plot of this Divine Narrative to me, I know that's what he believed: he, Owen Meany, had interrupted the Angel of Death at her holy work; she had reassigned the task—she gave it to him.
    p. 106.1
  • Perhaps this is also why she's so successful now: with the direction her music traveled, from folk to rock, and with the visual aid of those appalling rock videos—those lazy-minded, sleazy associations of "images" that pass for narrative on all the rock-video television channels around the world—irony is no longer necessary.
    p. 519.8
