Cherry Sour with Bitters ©2007 by B. H. Triber

Cherry Sour with Bitters is a piece I wrote in 2007 that sat on a shelf for a while. It was subsequently entered in the 2008 OUT Short Fiction Contest.

The short story is about the relationship between a drag queen and her supportive lover the evening after a show. I particularly like the atmosphere of the piece. Originally it was a kind of character study of Avery from my novel-length manuscript Club 1692, but there are many differences, not the least of which is that Avery, a former college professor, is much more independent that Cherry, and has been through many more trials, making her much tougher than Lee press-ons.

The short story can be found on my Writing Samples page.
