內容簡介

奧斯卡影帝湯姆.漢克斯首部作品──
由17篇故事組成、打字機貫穿的短篇故事集!

對打字機擁有無比狂熱的湯姆.漢克斯,在過去幾十年來收集了100多台打字機,而書中17篇涵蓋各種廣泛主題故事,則由一台老舊打字機貫穿,從因為內戰而移居美國紐約的東歐移民、因為接連打出完美保齡球而成為ESPN新星的男子、到美國尋找各種有價值事物的古怪億萬富翁與忠誠助手、面對身心創傷的二戰老兵、對現代世界抱有過時想法的小鎮報紙專欄作家、到四個搭乘自製的火箭往返月球與地球的朋友……

在每一篇故事中,打字機的存在都扮演某種角色。對於許多人而言,打字機象徵在現代世界中,越來越難以尋求的工藝、美與獨立性的境界,湯姆.漢克斯優美而成功地將17篇故事提升至打字機所代表的境界。《Uncommon Type》時而幽默、時而憂鬱、時而感人,探索友誼、家庭與愛等等日常生活表面之下的故事,不僅是本高品質的著作,也會讓影迷為之驚艷!


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 hectic, funny sexual affair between two best friends. A World War II veteran dealing with his emotional and physical scars. A second-rate actor plunged into sudden stardom and a whirlwind press junket. A small-town newspaper columnist with old-fashioned views of the modern world. A woman adjusting to life in a new neighborhood after her divorce. Four friends going to the moon and back in a rocket ship constructed in the backyard. A teenage surfer stumbling into his father's secret life.

These are just some of the people and situations that Tom Hanks explores in his first work of fiction, a collection of stories that dissects, with great affection, humour, and insight, the human condition and all its foibles. The stories are linked by one thing- in each of them, a typewriter plays a part, sometimes minor, sometimes central. To many, typewriters represent a level of craftsmanship, beauty and individuality that is harder and harder to find in the modern world. In his stories, Mr Hanks gracefully reaches that typewriter-worthy level.

Known for his honesty and sensitivity as an actor, Mr Hanks brings both those characteristics to his writing. Alternatingly whimsical, moving and occasionally melancholy, Uncommon Type is a book that will delight as well as surprise his millions of fans. It also establishes him as a welcome and wonderful new voice in contemporary fiction, a voice that perceptively delves beneath the surface of friendships, families, love and normal, everyday behaviour.
