Pequena biografia
Thomas Jeffrey Hanks (born July 9, 1956) is an American actor and filmmaker. Known for both his comedic and dramatic roles, Hanks is one of the most popular and recognizable film stars worldwide, and is widely regarded as an American cultural icon. Hanks' films have grossed more than $4.9 billion in North America and more than $9.96 billion worldwide, making him the fifth-highest-grossing actor in North America.

Hanks made his breakthrough with leading roles in the comedies Splash (1984) and Big (1988). He won two consecutive Academy Awards for Best Actor for starring as a gay lawyer suffering from AIDS in Philadelphia (1993) and a young man with below-average IQ in Forrest Gump (1994). Hanks collaborated with film director Steven Spielberg on five films: Saving Private Ryan (1998), Catch Me If You Can (2002), The Terminal (2004), Bridge of Spies (2015), and The Post (2017), as well as the 2001 miniseries Band of Brothers, which launched him as a director, producer, and screenwriter.

Hanks' other notable films include the romantic comedies Sleepless in Seattle (1993) and You've Got Mail (1998); the dramas Apollo 13 (1995), The Green Mile (1999), Cast Away (2000), Road to Perdition (2002), and Cloud Atlas (2012); and the biographical dramas Saving Mr. Banks (2013), Captain Phillips (2013), Sully (2016), and A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019). He has also appeared as the title character in the Robert Langdon film series, and has voiced Sheriff Woody in the Toy Story film series (1995-2019).

Hanks' accolades include two Academy Awards out of six nominations. He has received the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts in 2004.[5] In 2014, he received a Kennedy Center Honor, and in 2016, he received a Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama, as well as the French Legion of Honor.

If you've seen the garrulous Mr. Hanks on a talk show, particularly Graham Norton, you've got the tone of this book. The title describes the book entirely. And, of course there are many references to typewriters and WWII. Overall, very enjoyable.

Did you know that Tom Hanks was also a writer? I had not known until I found this gem in a used book store. Uncommon Type contains 17 short stories that can be read on their own. Some are loosely connected through their protagonists and all of them feature a typewriter in some capacity or other. There is the unlikely relationship between a high-energy woman and a laid-back man, there is time traveling, there is the kid growing up after his parents separated, there are war veterans, there is the immigrant to the United States, there is a couple that owns a roadside motel in a deserted area of land, and so much more.

All of the stories provide slices of life that take you in almost instantly and make you turn the pages. I loved the writing, I loved the characters and I loved the plots of the stories. After each story I found myself hoping it would not end so soon and continue just a little more. This, however, does not subtract from the quality of the reading experience. Rather, it makes you wonder and stay in the world that was created in the stories a little longer. I really found myself rooting for some of the characters and have grown quite fond of them. I am really glad that I found this book. 5 stars.
