'A stunning, emotionally satisfying tale about the art of storytelling. I never wanted the lights to come up. I could not put it down' GRAHAM NORTON 'It's its own universe, complete with a sun, a cast of circling planets, and a limitless number of stars. Its gravity pulls you in and its far reaching, multi-layered, rollicking exuberance holds you in place. I would have been happy to live inside this book forever' ANN PATCHETT A wildly ambitious story of the making of a colossal, star-studded, multimillion-dollar superhero action film, and the humble comic book that inspired it all. Spanning 80 years of a changing America and culminating in the opening of the film, we meet a colourful cast of characters including a troubled soldier returning from war, a young boy with an artistic gift, an inspired and eccentric director, a pompous film star on the rise, a tireless production assistant and countless film crew members that together create Hollywood magic. Funny, touching, and wonderfully thought-provoking, The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece offers an insider's take on the momentous efforts it takes to make a film. At once a reflection on America's past and present, on the world of show business and the real world we all live in. Praise for Tom Hanks: 'Authentically geniune . . . a Writer with a capital W.' Stephen Fry 'Hanks's prose is impressive . . . fluent, convincing and confident.' The Times 'Tom Hanks is a wise and hilarious writer with an endlessly surprising mind.' Steve Martin

I never wanted the lights to come up. I could not put it down -- Graham Norton THE MAKING OF ANOTHER MAJOR MOTION PICTURE MASTERPIECE is its own universe, complete with a sun, a cast of circling planets, and a limitless number of stars. Its gravity pulls you in and its far reaching, multi-layered, rollicking exuberance holds you in place. I would have been happy to live inside this book forever -- Ann Patchett A proper literary belter * The Times * An extravagant, buoyant, joyfully sprawling book, bursting with affection for its characters, for the intricate lore of the movie business, and for the many ways in which human beings are one another's greatest opportunity -- Tana French This is a wild, ambitious and exceptionally enjoyable novel.

Lovingly crafted, a wildly entertaining story beautifully told . . . You'll love this book * Booklist * An impressive debut * Daily Express * Tom Hanks' novel is smart and sharp * The Telegraph * A thoroughly likeable gem of a novel with hidden depths - rightly securing Hanks's place in the literary world * Press Association * At once a love letter to the movies and an affectionate portrait of small-town America, told with insider insight and considerable charm * Mail on Sunday * An impressive debut * Daily Mirror *
