As I've noted in Pulitzers of this age, the writing was incredibly simple. A very simple story - but one I liked. It was about Chicago from the 1890's to around the late 1920's. As an added bonus, it took place in my actual neighborhood! So I dug that, obviously. The writing though, was almost just a list of things that happened. Like, "Agnes went to the store. She bought cake there. She put the cake in the bag. She brought the cake home. She ate the cake¿ If this had been one of the first Pulitzers I'd read from that time I would probably have hated it. But I'm used the simple writing style and realize they used to award the Pulitzer more on story than writing style, as they do now.
