Winner of the 1976 National Book Award, "J R" is a biting satire
about the many ways in which capitalism twists the American spirit
into something more dangerous, yet pervasive and unassailable. At
the center of the novel is a hilarious eleven year old -- J R --
who with boyish enthusiasm turns a few basic lessons in capitalist
principles, coupled with a young boy's lack of conscience, into a
massive and exploitative paper empire. The result is one of the
funniest and most disturbing stories ever told about the corruption
of the American dream.
