9780140140163: Budding Prospects

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.

Review:

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
