`Adrift is an engaging introduction to living on a narrow
boat, held together with atmospheric descriptions of reconnecting
with life's simple pleasures ... It is at its best when capturing
the transition from a life on land to a life on board, as well as
mapping the evolving relationship between urban building
developments and the canal's ecology.' -- Times Literary
`A compelling exploration of river living'* Homes and Gardens *
`A treat ... Babbs's effortless prose is tight and lyrical, moseying along at a calm, steady pace, but there are moments both barbed and cutting ... A serious and fascinating book'* Hackney Citizen *
`Chapter after chapter of utterly captivating prose'* Caught by the River *
