The scene is the twenty-third century. At the heart of the novel is a love story between a man and a woman who are forced to hide their feelings and pass as homosexuals. Nontraditional Love describes a homosexual world in which heterosexual marriages are forbidden.

World history and the classics of world literature Tolstoy, Shakespeare… have been falsified in order to support the ideology of this opposite world. After Robert Marcus secret wife Liza abandons him for another man, he decides to make a radical change in life and become a normal gay man. His first prospective male partner is Jacob Stein, a retired policeman.

During their first date Jacob dies. Is it a murder or an accident? The FBI begins an investigation. In this satirical novel, where an erotic fantasy and a crime story are artfully intertwined, there is an overt call for our policy to be more tolerant in accepting and respecting a person s right to be himself. Any extreme prohibitions imposed upon that right may lead to a tragic, absurd reality akin to the world described by George Orwell in his prophetic and warning novel 1984.
