Being with Benny is the story of how Bob Miller, from a shattered childhood in rural Australia and only four years of schooling, became one of the world's leading yacht designers. His creation, Australia II, won the America's Cup in 1983, ending the New York Yacht Club's 132-year hold on the world's oldest sporting trophy. Miller, who changed his name to Ben Lexcen before designing Australia II, also designed three-handed lightweight 18-footers that changed the whole course of skiff design, the Contender dinghy, and successful ocean racers such as Mercedes III, Apollo, Ginkgo, Ballyhoo and Sydney-Hobart race winner Ceil III. He was also a champion sailor and represented Australia in the Olympic Games. Being with Benny not only tells his story, some of it in his own words, but how he influenced the lives of the people around him, many of whom have helped re-sail the adventurous course of his life in this book.
Fourteen-year-old Alex Moran spends every summer with his father and this year his dad has moved next door to Benny Harper and his aunt. When he meets Benny, he finds an outgoing boy his own age that shares his love of reptiles. Benny doesn't have any other friends though because he's been HIV positive from birth and no one understands. They're even afraid of him, which is something Alex doesn't understand at all. They spend nearly every day together during that first summer and each summer after that they come back together. Their lives change as they grow up, but their friendship only gets stronger until it gives way to love and Alex realizes that his dad moving next door to Benny was the best thing to ever happen to him. Nothing is as good as being in love with his best friend, and over the years Alex realizes just how much Benny means to him. He doesn't know how long he'll ever have with Benny, but whatever time he does have he's determined to make the most of it.

Benedikte (Benny) Fiske has also sold up and moved on, too—to a wonderful Greek island where she can invest in herself again and find peace and quiet.

In fact, she has a lot of opinions on Win and her new life—the strongest being Benny should be back in it. Nestled in the beautiful Aegean on an island blessed by Eros, the God of Love himself, Benny finds no lack of inspiration in her quest to woo back her lost love. Her methods, however, are the stuff myths are made of.

Annie Ehrlich, a woman of a certain age, born in Munich is the only Holocaust survivor of her family. She is living contentedly with her husband and writes for various journals. Through her work she has contact with the publisher of Jacob Jabot, revisionist historian and fervent holocaust denier. A chance meeting with this vile man convinces her that the world must be rid of him and that she must be the one to do it. At the Munich Opera House, during the performance of Gotterdammerung, Jabot falls into her honey trap and invites her home. A dense phantasmagoria of sexual power play and revenge follows, during which the reader is taken on a journey through the darkest hours of European history as seen through the eyes of one of its hapless victims, through the post war years of rebuilding and rebirth and back into a present that flickers between the real and the imaginary, the desired and the feared. Nemesis is at turns literary autobiography, wish fulfilment and poignant commentary on the basest human emotions by an author who herself lived through the madness of Nazi Germany.
Diana Weiss, an American of mixed Jewish-Christian heritage, arrives to spend a year on a kibbutz in Israel at a time when the country is struggling to redefine itself in the wake of the 1982 incursion into Lebanon.
