In The Red Volkswagen, Rosanne Dingli has offered us a brief glimpse into the lives of two very different people, who meet under unusual circumstance.
We don't learn their names until the end of the story, but we do learn a lot about them. Rosanne skillfully shows rather than tells bits and pieces of the characters' personalities via dream sequences and their behaviors.
The automobile itself is a quiet prop that facilitates some of the actions and interactions.
The ending is open, allowing the reader to speculate on what may or may not result of this chance (or perhaps not so chance) meeting.
