9780140140163: Budding Prospects

Set in a California marijuana farm, this story shows how to make a quick two million - get a commission to grow acres of marijuana in the middle of nowhere and be ready for the rake-off one year later. Three heroes are dead set on carrying it out, despite the more than harsh conditions.

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
