Uncommon Type:Some Stories

Tom Hanks

A gentle Eastern European immigrant arrives in New York City after his life has been torn apart by his country's civil war. A man who loves to bowl rolls a perfect game--and then another and another until he winds up ESPN's newest celebrity. 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 stories two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks tells in his surprising, intelligent, and heartwarming debut collection.
