I've been meaning to read Devdas for a long while (since I saw two Bollywood movie versions of it), and this was the only copy available at my library. [So I have NOT read the other novels contained in this book.]

I very much enjoyed reading the translated version of Devdas, though I'm sure the Bangla original is much, much better. It was fascinating to see the flaws of the characters, and where life takes them. It is a story of love, but it's also one of life, and a commentary on society.
Fantastic writer. I was blown away by the timelessness of his stories. He writes quite a bit about the situation of women in his time and shows a deep level of empathy and understanding that would be hard for most male writers to match. Each of the novels was fascinating and spellbinding, but Debt and Payment was by far my favorite. It is one of the greatest love stories I've ever read.
