Description: In June 1920, a bomb exploded at the Teatro Nacional in Havana during a performance by Enrico Caruso in Aida. Panicked, the singer fled the theater and disappeared into the streets for several days. What happened to him is the fiction imagined by Cuban novelist Mayra Montero.

Caruso is drawn into a passionate love affair with Aida Cheng, a 27-year-old Chinese-Cuban mulatta woman whose godfather is a powerful santero. Told by Enriqueta, the daughter born of the affair, and by Aida herself, The Messenger unfolds its mysteries against the rhythms of santeria and Chinese folk magic and weaves a brooding, compelling tale of love and death that is "spellbinding" and "well worth the trip" (Miami Herald).
