Tom Hanks is Releasing a Book of Short Stories

Tom Hanks is releasing a book! His collection of short stories, Uncommon Type: Some Stories hits shelves on October 29th. This is Hanks’ first book, but not his first published short story. “Alan Bean Plus Four” which tells the story of a NASA astronaut, was published by the New Yorker a few videos. 

According to Bustle, Uncommon Type “won’t be informed by the actor’s love of history. Rather, each of the 17 stories contained in Hanks’ collection will center on a different typewriter. Hanks is a typewriter aficionado who owns more than 100 vintage models.” 

We can’t wait for this to be released! Tom Hanks’ stories are sure to live up to the hype.
