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-winning author of The Polished Hoe
Doctor must be commended for her ability to render a disembodied "meandering whoosh" sympathetic.--Quill & Quire
In the worlds that Farzana Doctor creates, ordinary people are wondrous and complicated, and all these things that divide us -- countries, professions, sexualities, genders, races -- are mere distractions from what truly matters. Her stories ring true enough to think our world could be that way too. One can only hope.--Daily Xtra
An ambitious, thematically voracious novel on love and the wounds we didn't know we had.--Globe & Mail
Farzana Doctor's original, provocative new novel seduces (and challenges) readers on every page. All Inclusive is Doctor's best -- and sexiest! -- work yet.--Angie Abdou, author of The Bone Cage
Yep, it is a provocative novel, one that will raise eyebrows.--The Sun Times
By turns funny, moving, thoughtful, and erotic, All Inclusive is a powerful meditation on life, love, and loss. Farzana Doctor spins a passionate, page-turning tale about the sometimes invisible ties that bind. This is brilliant storytelling.--Terry Fallis, author of The Best Laid Plans
The imagination of the afterlife is one of the highlights of the novel.... Doctor crafts a modern ghost story that emphasizes an open mind when it comes to history and a focus on its outcomes rather than its cause.--Ottawa Writer's Festival
All Inclusive is a page turner, and Doctor is a deliciously evocative writer.--Literary Review of Canada
Farzana Doctor's third novel, All Inclusive, is a rare, somewhat whimsical but vibrantly coloured toucan in a nest of Canadian starlings ... All Inclusive is not your traditional Can Lit (capital C, capital L) and thank god for it.--Plentitude
Ambitious, original, mysterious, sensual, All Inclusive is all that -- and a terrific read to boot.--Toronto Star
All Inclusive is chock full of surprises. It has ghostly spirits, grief, young adult angst, intrigue, and even some touches of erotica ... Doctor is able to blend these elements into something unique and captivating.--Speaking Across Centuries
