Who would have thought that the glamour of working the slopes as a ski instructor would turn out to be just another snow job' After finishing college, joining the labor force, and unceremoniously getting canned, Betty Winters does what any self-respecting postgrad with an expensive liberal arts education would do: she defies her wealthy Connecticut parents and goes west to ski-bum around the Tetons. But after a year of the rambler's life, Betty feels her enthusiasm beginning to wane. There's nothing she loves more than the Jackson Hole vistas, the soft murmur of fresh powder, and the sheer pleasure of conquering a killer bump run. Plus she's pretty partial to her hunky boyfriend, Jack. What she's coming to hate, though, is the wake-and-bake ritual of their pot-filled mornings, the measly wages from her double shifts instructing on the slopes and moonlighting as a cocktail waitress at the Mangy Moose, and the feeling that for Jack, ski-bumming isn't just a phase. And then there's Jack's wife, Muriel. . . . When tryouts are announced for a famous extreme-ski video series, Betty decides to enter: perhaps getting paid to ski the world is her calling. But all the training in the world can't prepare her for what follows. . . .

Mr. Benson is the compelling story of a young man's quest for the perfect master. In a West Village leather bar, he finds wealthy, sophisticated, exacting Aristotle Benson, who leads him down the path of erotic enlightenment, teaching him to accept cruelty as love, anguish as affection, and ultimately, Mr. Benson as his master.If John Preston, the masterly, handsome author of more than 30 books, was himself a gay icon, his character Mr. Benson defined the culture of gay sex for an entire generation. When Mr. Benson appeared in the pre-AIDS early 1980s, its unabashed celebration of male sexuality made it a cult favorite among gay men, many of whom wore T-shirts declaring that they were "looking for Mr. Benson." The novel's fresh voice and insights into identity, desire, power, and love influenced a generation of writers and editors, including Anne Rice, Samuel Delany, Michael Lowenthal, Laura Antoniou, Joan Nestle, Michael Rowe, and Cecilia Tan. Mr. Benson was Preston's first novel and was followed by many more books from the proud, self-styled "pornographer."
