Tepper isn t going out. Why not? His explanations tend to be rather literal the indisputable fact, for instance, that he has twenty minutes left on the meter.
But once New Yorkers become aware of Tepper, some of them begin to suspect that he knows something they don t. And an ever-increasing number of them are willing to line up for the opportunity to sit in his car with him and find out what it is.
Tepper Isn t Going Out is a wise and witty story of an ordinary man who, perhaps innocently, changes the world around him.
