Description


An Evening with
Tom Hanks


discussing his bestselling collection of stories,
Uncommon Type

Tom Hanks is an actor, screenwriter, director and producer. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, Vanity Fair, and The New Yorker. This is his first collection of fiction.

“It turns out that Tom Hanks is also a wise and hilarious writer with an endlessly surprising mind. Damn it.”
—Steve Martin

“Reading Tom Hanks's Uncommon Type is like finding out that Alice Munro is also the greatest actress of our time.”—Ann Patchett

Uncommon Type is a collection of seventeen wonderful short stories showing that two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks is as talented a writer as he is an actor.

A gentle Eastern European immigrant arrives in New York City after his family and his life have been torn apart by his country's civil war. A man who loves to bowl rolls a perfect game--and then another and then another and then many more in a row until he winds up ESPN's newest celebrity, and he must decide if the combination of perfection and celebrity has ruined the thing he loves. An eccentric billionaire and his faithful executive assistant venture into America looking for acquisitions and discover a down and out motel, romance, and a bit of real life. These are just some of the tales Tom Hanks tells in this first collection of his short stories. They are surprising, intelligent, heartwarming, and, for the millions and millions of Tom Hanks fans, an absolute must-have!
