Fuller, Henry Blake

▪ American novelist
born Jan. 9, 1857, Chicago, Ill., U.S.
died July 28, 1929, Chicago

      American novelist who wrote about his native city of Chicago.

      Fuller came from a prosperous Chicago family and attended the city's schools. After a foray into business he lived for a year abroad, mostly in Italy, to which he returned several times. His first two novels—The Chevalier of Pensieri-Vani (1890; written under the pseudonym Stanton Page) and The Chatelaine of La Trinité (1892)—were gracefully told, brief but unhurried tales about Europe.

      Fuller took a decidedly different direction with The Cliff-Dwellers (1893), a realistic novel, called the first important American city novel, about people in a Chicago skyscraper. With the Procession (1895) was another realistic novel about a wealthy Chicago merchant family and the efforts of some of its members to keep up with the city's wealthy ruling class. His other fiction set in Chicago includes Under the Skylights (1901), short stories about the city's artistic life; On the Stairs (1918), a novel about two men, one going up in life, the other down; and Bertram Cope's Year (1919), which is about an instructor at the University of Chicago. He continued his European-based fiction with Waldo Trench and Others (1908), stories about Americans in Italy; and Gardens of This World (1929), which extends the tale begun in his first book.

      Fuller helped establish the book review section of the Chicago Evening Post (1901–02) and wrote editorials from 1911 to 1913 for the Chicago Record-Herald.
