Gump & Co
NY, Pocket Books, (1995). Proof copy of this novel written in the wake of the success of the movie version of Groom's novel Forrest Gump. A book apparently issued to cash in on the "Gump" craze--a shamelessly mercenary move for which its author can perhaps be forgiven, considering the amazing fact that his royalties from the film, when it had grossed $329 million, had thus far amounted to $0, as the movie had still not made a profit, according to the legendary Hollywood accountants and their own fictions. Fine in wrappers. [#005167] $20
