The stories in Sic Transit Wagon bring together a rich, evocative and authentic tapestry of Trinidad life, from the 1940s to the present day. We move from the all-seeing naivety of a child narrator trying to make sense of the adult world, through the consciousness of the child-become-mother, to the mature perceptions of the older woman taking stock on all that has gone before. In the title story a playful pun on the Latin phrase on the glory of worldly things coming to an end the need to part with a beloved station wagon becomes a moving and humorous image for other kinds of loss.
