Fiction • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Since Calvin Trillin has been referred to by THE NEW YORK TIMES as "the Buster Keaton of performance humorists," it's not surprising that his reading of his newest novel at first comes across as flat and uninteresting to the uninitiated. But as his story of a New York man who enjoys reading the paper behind the wheel of his parked car develops, Trillin's voice grows on the listener. The story is a magically witty farce about Murray Tepper, who won't leave his parking spot until his meter expires and who becomes the center of a legal and political battle. Tepper isn't going out of his spot, and if you listen to this story in your car, neither will you. S.E.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
