Searching for Petronius Totem reviewed in Existere

Peter Unwin’s novel Searching for Petronius Totem is reviewed in the upcoming issue of Existere magazine, 37.1, out of York University:

“A satirical post-postmodern novel, Unwin’s latest creation is reminiscent of Thomas Pynchon’s The Crying of Lot 49; however, whereas Pynchon’s novel seems to resist any meaningful interpretation of its symbols and themes, Unwin has skillfully crafted unfathomable scenarios embedded with meaning relevant to the world we live in today. He reveals ironies in modern systems of government, in how we create and value art, in how we show and experience love, and in how we trust and rely on technology.”
