In 1921, the Pulitzer committee made a rare choice to embrace controversy and bestowed the award upon Edith Wharton's The Age of Innocence. Today, the book is considered a classic, but at the time critics dismissed it as an old-fashioned yarn and an expat's unflattering denunciation of the United States' backwardness.
