Running Time
1 Hr.


Tom Hanks, iconic actor-producer-director-screenwriter, has added to his list of accomplishments: author. NPR host Peter Sagal joins the two-time Academy Award-winner to discuss his love of writing, the creative process, and his debut collection of short stories Uncommon Type. Connected by the recurring motif of a typewriter (Hanks is an avid collector of vintage typewriters and owns over one hundred of them), Uncommon Type includes stories about a woman adjusting to life after a divorce, a man immigrating to New York after escaping civil war, a billionaire and his assistant on an adventure, and a tale perhaps all too familiar to Hanks: an actor enduring a press junket.
