Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all — if only he could win the heart of his true love. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of De Bergerac — or can his mastery of language set Roxane’s world alight?
