Overview

Forrest Gump is back! A little older, and wiser in his unique way, he is still running through the kaleidoscopic events of our times - and straight into the age of greed and instant gratification known as the 1980s. The Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. has gone bust and Forrest is flat broke, sweeping floors in a New Orleans strip joint when Gump & Co. begins. As always in Forrest's easy-come-easy-go life, a change in the weather is never far off... and when the opportunity to play championship football comes his way once more, Forrest is back in the limelight and in the money. But fate is a fickle lady, and he's soon out on the road selling phony encyclopedias and trying to raise his son, little Forrest, who needs his father more than ever. Forrest's remarkable, touching, and utterly comic odyssey has just begun: in store for him is an explosive attempt at hog farming; his own dubious recipe for adding life to New Coke; an encounter with Ollie North; and a chance yet again to unwittingly twist the nose of history.

In his celebrated novel, Forrest Gump, Groom created "a great American hero" (Rima Firrone, Ocala Star-Banner), a lovable man for all ages. Now in a rollicking sequel, Forrest guides readers through the age of instant gratification known as the 1980s, featuring adventures which include a dubious recipe for New Coke, another crack at pro football, and an encounter with Oliver North.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The continuing adventures of You-Know-Who. (July)
Library Journal
An award-winning movie made from an originally disappointing novel (Forrest Gump, LJ 3/1/86) cries out for a sequel: so here it is. Groom gives us the last decade of Gump's life, including the 1995 Academy AwardsR ceremony with the movie sweeping the OscarsR and Gump getting a special award as "The Most Lovable Certified Idiot in America." Along the way he becomes involved in Iran-Contra, insider trading, the Exxon Valdez oil spill, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and Desert Storm. Tapping into another trend, Groom gives Gump an angel to guide him; Jenny, the love of his life and mother of Little Forrest, lived on in the first Gump novel but died in the movie, so Groom kills her by page 15 and brings her back at opportune times. Little Forrest is along for some of this ride, usually with ideas for successful ventures, including the oyster company of the title. (Once again, shellfish from Louisiana save Gump's financial hide.) As a book, this is a media event, so expect demand, with a movie to follow-and maybe even an oyster cookbook. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 7/95.]-Michele Leber, Fairfax Cty. P.L., Va.
