A collection of seventeen wonderful short stories showing that two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks is as talented a writer as he is an actor.
A gentle Eastern European immigrant arrives in New York City after his family and his life have been torn apart by his country's civil war. A man who loves to bowl rolls a perfect game--and then another and then another and then many more in a row until he winds up ESPN's newest celebrity, and he must decide if the combination of perfection and celebrity has ruined the thing he loves. 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 tales Tom Hanks tells in this first collection of his short stories. They are surprising, intelligent, heartwarming, and, for the millions and millions of Tom Hanks fans, an absolute must-have!
It grew on me but ultimately just ok.
Nothing wrong with these stories, but honestly I don’t think that they would have been published if they weren’t written by Tom Hanks. He has a nice sense of character development but ultimately an average collection of average short stories.
Love this book!!!
These stories are amazing and beautifully written! How can this man be so talented?! Some will put a smile on your face, some will make you life, and some will make you get in touch with your emotions. A must read
