THE LAST PLACE I saw Vicki Tepper was that rowhouse off Loch Raven Boulevard. While men from the March Funeral Home quietly removed mourners' chairs from the little living room, Tepper consoled the grandmother of an 11-year-old boy named John-John who had just died from the effects of AIDS. Tepper went to a lot of funerals in those days. It was six years ago, but it feels longer. Tepper, 45, is director of the Pediatric AIDS program at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. She has 175 children, infants to 18-year-olds, under her treatment there.

Tepper Isn't Going Out, by Calvin Trillin. Random House. 215 pages. $22.95. If you live in Manhattan and park your car on the streets -- as opposed to paying usurious fees to a garage -- this curious comic novel by Calvin Trillin may be right up your alley. If you're not (and this effectively eliminates some 260 million Americans), it may be considerably less appealing. Murray Tepper is a mild-mannered senior citizen with a strange fixation for parking. He knows all the parking regulations -- Lower East Side, one-hour parking, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. including Sunday; East 78th Street, no parking 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday and Friday, etc. Once he finds a prime spot, he sits there for hours in his car, reading the newspaper and making annoying little hand gestures that signify "I'm not going out" to motorists who covet his parking space.

They hugged and petted the sleek black greyhound; her whip-like tail wagged in dignified response.Daisy was among eight racing greyhounds who had just completed a nine-hour rescue run from New Hampshire to Lutherville to begin new lives as family pets.The lean-bodied dogs, some of whom were still racing only two weeks ago, had faced certain death simply because they could no longer chase a mechanical rabbit around a racetrack fast enough.
