All Inclusive

“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, Canada Reads and Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal-winning author of The Best Laid Plans

Whether it’s about work and pl

Whether it’s about work and play or life and death, sometimes there’s no avoiding bumpy encounters.

What’s it like when everyone’s dream vacation is your job? Ameera works at a Mexican all-inclusive resort, where every day is paradise — if “paradise” means endless paperwork, quotas to meet, and entitled tourists to deal with. But it’s not all bad: Ameera’s pastime of choice is the swingers’ scene, and the resort is the perfect place to hook up with like-minded couples without all the hassle of ever having to see them again.

Despite Ameera’s best efforts to keep her sideline a secret, someone is spreading scandalous rumours about her around the resort, and her job might be at stake. Meanwhile, she’s being plagued by her other secret, the big unknown of her existence: the identity of her father and the reason he abandoned her. Unbeknownst to Ameera, her father, Azeez, is looking for her. The fact that he’s dead is just a minor detail.

A moving new work from award-winning author Farzana Doctor, All Inclusive blurs the lines between the real world and paradise, and life and the afterlife, that shows how love can conquer any obstacle.

    An interesting fusion of contemporary and ghost fiction, set in a Pacific all-inclusive resort where anything goes, under covers, that is.

    Ameera, a 29 year-old of mixed Canadian-Indian heritage, works at an all-inclusive resort in Huatulco, Mexico, and is on a team of tour-operator’s assistants made up of expatriates and locals. They up-sell local tours to visitors, mainly to gain brownie points with their bosses and not necessarily always for the benefit of their customers. All are vying for th

    Ameera, a 29 year-old of mixed Canadian-Indian heritage, works at an all-inclusive resort in Huatulco, Mexico, and is on a team of tour-operator’s assistants made up of expatriates and locals. They up-sell local tours to visitors, mainly to gain brownie points with their bosses and not necessarily always for the benefit of their customers. All are vying for the new role of supervisor, as their Ottawa-based company looks to localize its management structure. The only problem is that Ameera has a fatal flaw, one frowned upon in the corporate world: she is a bisexual swinger with a rabid appetite for Thursday night orgies with her customers, without any attachments, for her sexual partners have to leave on their Friday departure flights.

    Her origins are interesting; she has never met her Indian father who sired her after a one-night stand on the eve of the Air India bombing. I figured the tragic air disaster had to play somewhere in the narrative as it has become a staple in recent Indo-Canadian literature, just like the Holocaust is to the Jews. This traumatic genesis has left Ameera as a rather shallow young woman preoccupied with sensory and material pursuits. The ghost story comes into play when we switch to her father Azeez’s viewpoint; the latter is now a spirit, albeit a benign one, trying to make up for his abrupt departure from this world. Above all, Azeez is determined to guide his errant daughter, from the “other side.”

    Therefore, there are two main story lines in the novel, narrated alternatively by Ameera and Aziz: Ameera is aspiring for promotion and fighting anonymous rumours about her sexual peccadilloes that are leaking all the way back to HQ in Ottawa, while Azeez is trying to make his unearthly presence felt (by “breathing” into humans, until they ‘feel” something) to his relatives both in India and Canada and steer them along the moral high ground, one that he himself strayed from just the day before his “accident.” While Ameera’s story is full of earthly foibles and preoccupations, Azeez’s story is a tender one of a loss never to be regained. He only has difficulty “breathing” into Ameera, for she is usually drunk after her shift, and “Alcohol is the ghost’s Kryptonite,” according to our gentle ghost.

    The author captures the atmosphere and activities of a tour-resort extremely well. But herein lies the challenge with this setting in a fiction novel, for it is indeed a barren place populated with petty jealousies, unbridled sensual appetites, sun, sand, and bored and overfed people going through a routine that gets repeated weekly with different sets of players on every new plane that arrives. The action at the resort becomes repetitious and inconsequential. The point brought out strongly and realistically is the difference in meritocracy that exists between local and expatriate staff – the latter being always favoured. I wondered whether the repeated mention of the charter aircraft operating into Huatulco being DC8s, in the year 2015 (which would have made the youngest of these noisy fuel guzzlers at least 44 years old), was deliberate on the part of the author in trying to symbolize a disaster waiting to happen.

    What I find puzzling is that when the inevitable yoghurt hits the fan on the supervisory appointment, it is the whistle blower who is punished, while the lying transgressor is restored, and corporate HQ is portrayed as a pitiable pimp peddling the supervisory job from Peter to Paul, almost begging one of them to take it. Again, I am not sure if this is a deliberate attempt to show the new morality that exists in Corporate North America today. I mourn for the days when job appointments were orchestrated with the utmost confidentiality, with proper protocols in place to announce management appointments, a time when HQ bosses descended like hawks upon field offices to get to the bottom of matters that were getting out of hand instead of relying on contradictory third-party reports that shifted like the surf on a sun-swept beach.

    I am glad however that Azeez, who is the novel’s real hero to me, prevails in the end, and fulfills his fatherly role by showing Ameera the better way, whatever its rewards may be down the road, but a path that is a departure from her sterile life of sun, sex, booze and greed, and towards one of principled purpose. The novel is therefore a cautionary tale for the Gen Y people and a good snapshot of the illusiveness of unbridled appetites.

    I received a free copy for a fair and honest review from NetGalley.

    Holy crap! I am absolutely in love with this book. Especially the amount of research that went into this book. We’ve got actual cities in Mexico and Canada as well as actual acts of terrorism mentioned in this book. One of the happiest things about this book for me is that there are NO love triangles. Instead there are swingers and polyamorous people. And the lead female is more or less bisexual (she’s asked about it and kinda goes with it but isn’t a huge fan of labels for herself). Oh and we have a trans character (though that character is kind of more or less an afterthought but doesn’t feel like a caricature or anything).

    It took me a few chapters to realise what was going on with Azeez and Ameera and their connections to each other but once it hit me my jaw dropped and I went “no way” and then when it was finally stated in the book I continued my “no way”. I also figured out the source of who was sabotaging Ameera before she did as well. But that has to do more with my own experiences of people backstabbing me.

    I loved the fact that Azeez and Ameera were definitely not white. I mean yeah, Ameera is half white but she doesn’t fully look it from the description of her in the book. I also like that the author included the fact that dissent between the locals and tourist places exist. And it wasn’t glossed over or treated as “this is just the way it has to be”. It was treated more as “this is a thing that happens and despite what the tourist place says it was anything but amicable”. And while yeah, I’d like to be a tourist one day and visit places I’d also like to get to know the local culture before I go and while I’m there and put money into their economy rather than tourist places.

    The swinger and polyamorous couples felt real and authentic to me. As I know quite a few of both groups in my personal life I can definitely say that the author definitely put in a lot of research and made them more like the real people I actually know in those lifestyles and that made me really happy. It’s not something I often see in books. Outside of books that are explicitly about the lifestyles.

    This is the first book I’ve read of the author’s and I definitely want to read more by them especially if the other books by them are as fantastic as this one. I honestly couldn’t find the words to recommend it enough to others.
