About this title


Winner Book of the Year bronze medal for Gay fiction.

Unmentionables is the story of two pairs of lovers in the American Civil War south. One couple is straight, white and wealthy. The other couple is gay, black and enslaved.  
Field hand Jimmy meets Cato, a house servant from a nearby plantation. Over time, Jimmy's fascination with Cato grows into romantic love.   

"One of the best novels of the year for any grown-up. A terrific, life-affirming read." - Kindle Nation Daily

"Unmentionables is superb historical fiction with a contemporary angle; an enlightening look at the hidden elements of our past. Five stars." -- Foreword Clarion Review

"This is a moving and profound novel, exploring the ways in which love counters cruelty in even the harshest of conditions. The characters are beautifully drawn, their feelings and motivations believable and real, their loves alternately heartbreaking and redemptive. Even the minor characters are drawn with the kind of careful detail that makes them spring brilliantly to life." -

About the Author:

Greene's first novel, Unmentionables, tells the story of slaves and slave holders who lived and loved during the Civil War. Unmentionables won a 2010 Book of the Year award from Foreword Reviews.

Greene's second novel, Detonate, inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's film, Saboteur, is a wrong-man thriller with a hero who is half-black, half-white, half-gay and half-straight.

Greene's third novel, The Winkler Case, is a gay reimagining of the classic noir novel, Double Indemnity by James M. Cain.

Greene is the spouse of the painter James Stephens. They live in Chicago.
