A Tom Hanks Type

The sound of a typewriter evokes a feeling of nostalgia, just as the name Tom Hanks evokes the highest level of Hollywood celebrity. The two-time Academy Award winner collects vintage writing machines and pays homage to this passion in his first book, "Uncommon Type." The collection of short fiction has elements of Hanks' life peppered throughout, including being a child of divorce and his experience living next to a difficult neighbor.
