Book of the Month December 2017-Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks

Each month we recommend a book from our library stock for adults. Please let us know your thoughts about the book via Facebook or Twitter.

Uncommon Type By Tom Hanks9781785151514

This is a collection of seventeen short stories by two times Oscar winner Tom Hanks. A hectic, funny sexual affair between two best friends. A World War II veteran dealing with his emotional and physical scars. A second-rate actor plunged into sudden stardom and a whirlwind press junket. A small-town newspaper columnist with old-fashioned views of the modern world. A woman adjusting to life in a new neighbourhood after her divorce. Four friends going to the moon and back in a rocket ship constructed in the backyard. A teenage surfer stumbling into his father’s secret life.These are just some of the people and situations that Tom Hanks explores in his first work of fiction, a collection of stories that dissects, with great affection, humour and insight, the human condition and all its foibles. The stories are linked by one thing: in each of them, a typewriter plays a part, sometimes minor, sometimes central. To many, typewriters represent a level of craftsmanship, beauty and individuality that is harder and harder to find in the modern world. This collection establishes him as a welcome  new voice in contemporary fiction, a voice that perceptively delves beneath the surface of friendships, families, love and normal, everyday behaviour.

You can borrow or reserve the book at your local Wokingham Borough Library http://www.wokingham.gov.uk/libraries/library-services/search-renew-and-reserve-items/
