Groom wrote eight novels, but none more famous than one centered around an unlikely hero from Alabama

Groom created the character of Forrest Gump, he said in 1994, after he and his father had enjoyed a weekend visit together. His father, in his eighties, told him of a neighborhood boy who was called "slow" but could play a piano brilliantly.

That same night, he began writing the book, which he said "just wrote itself." He finished the first draft six weeks later. He wanted to the character to have dignity, which he said later was the reason the story appealed to people.
