Description - Sirena Selena by Mayra Santos-Febres

Somewhere between the Blue Angel and Kiss of the Spider Woman rises the legend of Sirena Selena, diva-siren of the Carribbean whose voice seduces and torments whomever dares listen. Discovered by Martha Divine in the backstreets of San Juan, drugged out of his mind, piking over rubbish with a singing voice that transfixes the listener, a fifteen-year-old hustler is transformed into Sirena Selena, a diva whose uncanny beauty and irresistible voice will be their ticket to fame and fortune.
