Swordsman, soldier, poet . . . and possessor of the biggest nose in all of France! Cyrano de Bergerac was all this and more, for behind his grotesque face beat the heart of a lover. And, being Cyrano, who could he fall in love with but the most beautiful woman in Paris?

From this conflict of nose versus heart springs one of the most uproarious, tender, funny, painful, and action-packed stories of all time – a tale that has its roots in truth, for Cyrano de Bergerac really existed.

Working from Edmond Rostand's beloved play, Geraldine McCaughrean has transformed the tale into muscular prose that shimmers with turns of phrase Cyrano himself would have admired, offering us a thrilling new way to experience the power and passion, the humor and heartbreak, of one of the most beloved stories of all time.

The Art of the Insult (Cyrano)

"A joy to listen to . . . worthy of the highest recommendation for high school, college, and public library collections."
    — Library Bookwatch June 2013
"The full cast anchored by Cynthia Bishop does a fine job. The passionate love is wonderfully read as are the superb sword fighting, full bravery and doom"
Best Audiobooks of 2011
    — SoundCommentary January, 2012
"Trevor Hill is perfect as Cyrano, the man with the unfortunate nose who declares his love for Roxanne through letters while hiding behind the handsome face of his rival, Christian. Cynthia Bishop's polished narration, an outstanding cast with American-accented voices, and bits of fitting music complete the applause-worthy audio experience."

Praise for the print version of Cyrano:
"McCaughrean retells the classic tale in accessible language that is both entertaining and tender. . . The story has something for everyone–action, adventure, and romance. The dynamically drawn characters jump off the page. Staying true to Edmond Rostand's original tale, McCaughrean introduces a new generation to the swashbuckling hero."
    — School Library Journal
"With a beautiful mix of swashbuckling action, witty insult, passionate love, and heartbreaking melancholy, British Carnegie Medalist McCaughrean retells the story of the classic French play about Cyrano de Bergerac. . . . The timeless love story, tenderly told in plain poetry, will thrill teens, especially those who want an irreverent hero with panache and integrity. Great for readers' theater and for reading aloud."
