REVIEW: Of Calvin Trillin's Tepper Isn't Going Out. The two things I liked best about the review were the title ("Atlas Parked") and the following anecdote. Telling of an interview with a television station about a ridiculous conflict between a law abiding eccentric and the crazy mayor of New York City, one of the characters says to the eccentric:

"I hope they use the part where I say that you're a symbol of alienation in our times."

"I am?" Tepper said.

"Well, it's more like a metaphor," Mittgin said. "It doesn't mean you personally. I heard a lecture about it. It turns out that almost everything is a symbol of the alienation of our times…."
