Wall Street Journal on Rosa Liksom Compartment No 6

Enjoy this brilliant comment on Rosa Liksom’s novel:

“Ms. Liksom conjures beauty from the ugliest of things. As she finds something wily and comical in the unforgettably horrible Ivanov, so she imbues the industrial wastelands with an inexplicable charm (the elegant translation is by Lola Rogers):… What emerges is a twilight-hued elegy to the sickly last days of a wicked empire.”
