Paul-Thomas Ferguson will sign copies of his novel, A Life in Chiaroscuro, at the St. Ambrose University Bookstore, Harrison Street, Davenport, on Wednesday, December 3rd, from 3pm to 5pm.



A Life in Chiaroscuro is a work of historical fiction, featuring narrator Benjamin Andrews.  When Andrews moved to Milwaukee in 1904 to become editor of a major newspaper, he could not have imagined the path his life would take.  Now, writing from an insane asylum ten years later, Andrews tries to explain, for the final time, his role in a year full of societal intrigue, enduring love, calculated revenge, political scandal, and cold-blooded murder.


Paul-Thomas Ferguson works as an archivist for Vista International Operations and also teaches part-time at St. Ambrose University.  A playwright, poet, and musician, Dr. Ferguson holds a B.A. in European History from Western Illinois University, as well as an M.A. in Medieval History and a Ph.D. in American, Urban, and Middle Eastern History from Marquette University.  A Life in Chiaroscuro is his first novel.
