New york,5 November,2014: Â Actor Tom Hanks will publish a book of stories linked to his collection of typewriters, publisher Alfred A Knopf said on Monday. The book, which will include photographs, is still untitled and no publication date has been set.
â€œIâ€™ve been collecting typewriters for no particular reason since 1978â€”both manual and portable machines dating from the 30s to the 90s,â€ the 58-year-old Oscar winner said in a statement. â€œThe stories are not about the typewriters themselves, but rather, the stories are something that might have been written on one of them.â€
Hanks, who recently published his first work of fiction in the New York er magazine titled â€œAlan Bean Plus Four,â€ won best actor Academy Awards in 1994 for â€œPhiladelphiaâ€ and the following year for â€œForrest Gump.â€
