"Globe and Mail Review: The Colonial Hotel “A solid novel on morality in our not-quite-postcolonial world”"

"The wonderful @cfischerguy reviews Colonial Hotel: “Bennett is a poet and a novelist, and there is a spare and disciplined beauty to the prose. Here is Helen: “I am stolen land, erased language, an echo of rapes long ago…I become an idea of myself, of Helen, and I haunt them, poison their dreams.” Bennett is keenly aware of the tradition into which he casts his novel, and pays it homage.”"

"…this short novel is at once lyrical and brutal, alluring in its spare, elegant prose and shocking in its honest portrayal of the realities of political corruption and duplicitous leadership. Bennett is able to demonstrate the timelessness of the themes of the original classic story in this contemporary setting, offering both emotional depth and universal truths about the human condition."
