Tepper Isn’t Going Out – Calvin Trillin

Tepper Isn't Going OutThis week’s book was Tepper Isn’t Going Out, a novel by Calvin Trillin. It’s an amusing little satire in which, in the end, you realize that things are not always what they seem. The realization makes the ride all the more enjoyable, though. It’s a familiar gentleman-minding-his-own-business-becomes-a-folk-hero story with a twist: this gentleman (who also actually happens to be a gentle man) just wants to be left alone to read his newspaper in his (legally parked) car. In New York City.

While it won’t have you rolling in the aisles, it will put a smile on you face and has its fair share of laugh out loud moments. Recommended.
