Forrest Gump

Laugh, cry, stand up and cheer: Forrest Gump is everyman's story, everyman's dream. A wonderfully warm, savagely barbed, and hilariously funny 'tale told by an idiot', from the razor-sharp pen of a contemporary wizard.

No one is spared and everyone is included. If you've ever felt lacking, left out, put upon – or just wanted to have a rollicking good time – this book is for you. At 6'6", 240 pounds, Forrest Gump is a difficult man to ignore, so follow Forrest from the football dynasties of Bear Bryant to the Vietnam War, from encounters with Presidents Johnson and Nixon to powwows with Chairman Mao. Go with Forrest to Harvard University, to a Hollywood movie set, on a professional wrestling tour, and into space on the oddest NASA mission ever.

Forrest Gump lives! Thank heavens!

Rezension
"A superbly controlled satire"
Portrait
Winston Groom
Zitat
"Forrest Gump is line bred out of Voltaire and Huck Finn; its humour is wild and coarse, a satire right on the money. It is not the less honest for being so funny, for bringing the woebegone archangels of our culture and history to judgement. Anyone who doesn't read this book deserves to spend the winter in North Dakota" -- Jim Harrison "A superbly controlled satire" The Washington Post "Winston Groom has created the ideal citizen for the modern world - a perfect idiot" -- P.J. O'Rourke "Part Candide, part Huck Finn and a whold lot of Andy Griffith, [Gump] makes his case in a voice all his own" Los Angeles Times
