A Prayer for Owen Meany

A Prayer for Owen Meany

by John Irving

Mrs. Needham

Character Analysis

We only briefly meet Mrs. Needham. She's Dan's mom. She's sort of pretentious and elitist. Dan ceases to have anything to do with her or the rest of his family after they turn up their noses at Johnny and Tabby.
