A biting satire, JR features JR, an eleven-year-old capitalist, who embodies the cash culture he grows up in. The young JR manipulates his meagre economic beginnings including a shipment of Navy surplus picnic forks, a defaulted bond issue and turns them into a massive paper empire. The novel's satiric assault upon the American Dream, and the economics it represents makes a compulsive read and the seminal American novel.
