PITTSBURGH—Daniel Lowe, English professor at Community College of Allegheny County, Allegheny Campus, has published his first novel, “All That's Left to Tell,” which will hit stores on Tuesday, February 14. A book launch and signing event will take place on Friday, February 17, at 7:00 p.m. at White Whale Bookstore, 4754 Liberty Ave., Bloomfield. 

The novel, which reviewers have described as “intense,” “compelling” and “captivating,” is about an American businessman who is kidnapped in Pakistan and develops a relationship with one of his captors, a woman. The two share a strange but comforting ritual in which they tell each other stories that revolve around the businessman’s relationship with his deceased daughter.

Lowe, of McCandless, has been writing on and off for many years. His poetry and fiction have appeared in literary magazines, including West Branch, The Bridge, The Paterson Literary Review, Ellipsis, Blue Stem, Midway Journal and The Madison Review. He has also written several manuscripts, in addition to this novel, published by Flatiron Books.

Lowe is completing his 25th year as an English professor at CCAC, where he teaches English composition as well as Honors creative writing. He is also the Honors program coordinator for Allegheny Campus. He received his Master of Fine Arts in Fiction Writing from the University of Pittsburgh.
