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
