Ob ein Junge wie Forrest Gump, ein einsamer Schiffbruchiger oder ein Lehrer, der an Aids erkrankt - der Schauspieler Tom Hanks interessiert sich fur besondere Menschen und verkorpert sie auf mitreiende Weise. Eigensinnige, phantasievolle Typen begegnen uns auch in ersten literarischen Stories von Tom Hanks: Eine von ihnen ist Steve Wong, den die Natur mit dem feinsten Ballgefuhl der Welt ausgestattet hat, keinesfalls aber uber eine Bowlingkarriere nachdenken will. Oder die vier Freunde, die sich eine gebrauchte Raumkapsel besorgen, um mit ihr einmal den Mond zu umrunden. Hobbyastronauten, Heimwerker, Schauspielanfanger und andere Figuren bevolkern Tom Hanks' erstes Buch. Sein genauer Blick und seine groe Gabe zu erzahlen machen die Lekture zu einem eben solchen Vergnugen wie seine Filme.
