CommentsThe first American novel to take a serious look at life in that uniquely American urban innovation, the skyscraper, and “the first important American novel with city life at its theme” - Andrews, Chicago in Story. Henry Blake Fuller (1857-1929), a native of Chicago, was one of the most interesting American realist writers of the late 19th century. See the DAB, Wikipedia, etc.
