These are two of Tagore's brilliant novelettes brought together in one volume.
Farewell, My Friend presents the amusing picture of a sophisticated Bengali intellectual faced with the dilemma of his life when he falls in love with a girl of sensibility and deep feeling.
The Garden is a unique study of the feminine mind, absorbing and thought-provoking.
The style of the book is sparkling and brilliant with clever dialogues and subtle touches of irony and sarcasm . . . The translation is so good that one has to make an effort to realize that the book was originally written in Bengali. - - THE LEADER
