Tom Hanks has crafted a collection of quirky and engaging stories that warm the heart as well as lift the soul, many having some relation to typewriters. Some follow a quartet of young Americans, among them two recent emigrants, who conquer both the local bowling alley and outer space. Two follow the effort of very high-wealth individuals to gratify their every whim, in one case with disastrous results. All of the stories are provocative as well as delightful.
