Typewriters. I enjoyed reading most of the seventeen short stories in a collection titled, Uncommon Type, by Tom Hanks. Many of the stories included detailed descriptions of manual typewriters, an object the author enjoys and appreciates. The writing is as down-to-earth as Hanks appears to be, and the stories are both entertaining and interesting. I sensed the joy and pleasure that must have surrounded Hanks as he wrote these stories to share that pleasure with others.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
