Publisher's Synopsis

'Rollicking, bawdy' People
'Superbly controlled satire' Washington Post
'Joyously madcap' Publishers Weekly

Discover the bestselling novel that inspired the classic Oscar-winning film.

It's Forrest Gump as you've never seen him before, but just as lovable as ever.

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.

The wonderfully warm, savagely barbed, and hilariously funny novel that inspired iconic film starring Tom Hanks.

What readers are saying:

'A brilliant read'
'Loved the book just as much as I loved the film'
'Very well written and thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish'
