 Praise for All Inclusive


“Ambitious, original, mysterious, sensuala terrific read”

The Toronto Star

“An ambitious, thematically voracious novel on love and the wounds we didn’t know we had”

The Globe and Mail 

"Her outstanding characterization and the depth of language establish the importance of Farzana Doctor's writing. In her startling and evocative description of the lives of people in the tourist industry, All Inclusive is more than just a title." 

Austin Clarke, Giller Prize Winner

"Farzana Doctor's original, provocative new novel seduces (and challenges) readers on every page. All Inclusive is Doctor's best—and sexiest!—novel yet." 

Angie Abdou

"All Inclusive lives up to it's name: it ecompasses erotic exploration, an anonymous workplace saboteur, complicated family dynamics, the mystery of a lost love, international terrorism and facets of the supernatural...it is a compelling read, taking the reader on a fast-paced journey through Mexico, Canada, India, up in the air and into the afterlife."
