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 the 1994 Oscar-winning film starring Tom Hanks.
