Summary
Hanks writes about characters that he would love to play in the movies, had they been written. This collection of stories holds a myriad of emotions, settings, and time periods with two common threads: the typewriter and uncommonly normal men and women. You love the characters because you have something in common with all of them - some win, some lose, some are heroic and some timid, but they are all borne of the human existence and go largely unnoticed. Hank's charm and wit come through. -- Kimberly McGee for LibraryReads
