WSJ Best Books of 2016: Compartment No 6

Two of the year’s most remarkable books took place in the wastes of Siberia. Rosa Liksom’s “Compartment No. 6” (translated by Lola Rogers) describes the alliance that emerges between a young woman and a seedy construction worker stuck together on a train en route to Mongolia in the mid-1980s. The stations of their endless, halting trip display the gaudy twilight of the Soviet Empire.
