Yes, THAT Tom Hanks

May 11, 2017

Tom Hanks has written a short story collection, his first foray into authorship.  See the Entertainment Weekly story here. No ARC today I’m afraid but I’ll have a lot more next week (from PRH) for this summer and fall and perhaps this will be among them.  Stay tuned.  Also, Earlyword had a timely post on this around the time of the EW article.

Hanks, Tom. Uncommon Type. Knopf, October 24th.

Uncommon Type by Tom HanksPublisher Summary: 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!
