    Tom Hanks

    Top Ten Books

    Actor, filmmakerand “Hollywood’s most decent fella,” according to the New York Times—Tom Hanks has chalked up one of Hollywood's most impressive careers, not least as Steven Spielberg's favorite lead (including, most recently, as Ben Bradlee in The Post). He's scored Academy Awards for both dramatic and comedic roles (Philadelphia and Forrest Gump), and was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Barack Obama in 2016. The legend also recently took a jump into literature, penning "Uncommon Type," a collection of 17 short stories inspired by his favorite object—a manual typewriter. 

    Below are Tom Hanks's favorite books, available to purchase individually or as a set. See the full list...
