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
