Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks
Uncommon Type is funny, wise, gloriously inventive and humane. Tom Hanks sees inside people – a wary divorcee, a billionaire trading desire for disaster, a boy witnessing his father’s infidelity, a motley crew shooting for the moon – with such acute empathy and good humour we’d follow him anywhere.

Virgil Wander: A Novel
By Leif Enger
“What a wondrous miracle, to wake up, memory muddled, slightly unmoored, with just the task of relearning yourself, your friends, your hometown nestled along the ruggedly beautiful shores of Lake Superior. Everything that once was rundown and rusted suddenly seems new and exotic, buffed to a striking shine.
Such is the plight of Virgil Wander, who gives Leif Enger’s new novel its name …Wander is an orphan, a fallen seminarian, a movie-theater owner. After his car plunges off a cliff into the icy waters of the lake below, his memory and capacity for language are compromised.
…As Virgil’s memory begins to resolve, so does the glimmer of his small town begin to fade….. Against this richly drawn background, Enger weaves in a few different strands, including some that explore notions of fatherlessness and orphanhood.”
