A Prayer for Owen Meany

A Prayer for Owen Meany

by John Irving

Uncle Alfred Eastman

Character Analysis

Uncle Alfred is Aunt Martha's husband. He runs a lumberyard in northern New Hampshire. He seems to be kind of the strong, solid type. He's also what we call a flat character – he never really changes at all during the novel.
