Ernest Poole's novel about a man's attempt to understand modern life through the experiences of his three daughters would win the first Pulitzer Prize awarded in fiction.

"He was thinking of the town he had known. Not of old New Yorkas he had heard of that from old, old men when he himself had still been young and had smiled at their garrulity. He was thinking of a young New York, the mighty throbbing city to which he had come long ago as a lad from the New Hampshire mountains."
