Tom Hanks will soon be able to add “author” to his resumé, having secured a publisher for a collection of short stories inspired by his beloved typewriter collection.
Hanks, who recently published a story in the New Yorker, said his hobby of collecting antique writing machines had motivated him to take to the typewriter keys himself.
“I’ve been collecting typewriters for no particular reason since 1978 – both manual and portable machines dating from the thirties to the nineties,” the Oscar-winning actor said in a statement. “The stories are not about the typewriters themselves, but rather, the stories are something that might have been written on one of them.”
The collection, to be published by Knopf-Doubleday, doesn’t yet have a release date or a title.
