Reviews

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
