A Prayer for Owen Meany

A Prayer for Owen Meany


by John Irving

Mr. Brinker-Smith

Character Analysis

Mr. Brinker-Smith is one of the teachers at Gravesend Academy. He's British; he's also married to Ginger Brinker-Smith and is the father of twins. He and his wife have a really active love life and hook up in pretty much every dorm room at Gravesend Academy during the holidays. They end up doing it in a bed under which Owen is hiding, totally scarring him.
