Budding Prospects

A Pastoral

An "irresistible" (Los Angeles Times) novel about the adventures of three men growing marijuana in Northern California

All Felix Nasmyth and friends have to do is harvest a crop of Cannabis Sativa and half a million tax-free dollars will be theirs. But they haven't reckoned on nosy Northern California-style neighbors, torrential rain, demands of the flesh, and Felix's improbable new love, a wayward sculptress on whose behalf he undertakes a one-man vendetta against a drug-busting state trooper named Jerpbak. As their deal escalates through crises into nightmare, their dreams of easy money get nipped in the bud.
Rezension
Praise for Budding Prospects

"A first-rate picaresque adventure . . . a comic disaster on the classic and irresistible theme of the scalawag out-scalawagged."
- The Los Angeles Times

"Energetically written and very funny . . . lusty in every sense of the word, healthy, invigorating, and strong."
- The New York Times Book Review

"Boyle's characters, for all their grotesqueries, are wonderful and believable, each scene is marvelously and sensually constructed."
- The Dallas Morning News

"In an explosion of language, gaudy characters, and curious events, Boyle has provided his readers with a riotous Rabelaisian romp."
- The Seattle Times
