`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 Supplement

`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 *
`Waterways writing at its finest: the breathtaking, boat-eulogising Adrift.' -- @TheBookBarge
