New review by Jeanne Duperreault

“Altogether, an absorbing read. Farzana Doctor has used humour, heartache, joy and eroticism, to produce a compelling story of self-discovery with characters that we cheer on as they struggle towards a satisfactory conclusion.”

Review and interview by Jaclyn Qua-Hiansen

“I absolutely loved Farzana Doctor’s new book All Inclusive. The publisher’s summary begins with the intriguing question “What’s it like when everyone’s dream vacation is your job?” The novel takes place at an all-inclusive resort, and I loved the behind-the-scenes peek at the employees simply going through a work day while having to deal with starry eyed travellers expecting a five-star-everything experience.”
