Why Minnie Driver Loves the Water

From a New York Times review by Alexis Soloski of the book by Minnie Driver titled “Managing Expectations”:

Minnie Driver clambered into a pink-and-green kayak, adjusted her legs against the foot pegs, grabbed her paddle and pushed off the wobbling dock into a choppy Hudson River. “See you in Weehawken,” she said, yelling over her shoulder. A Canada goose looked on, mildly impressed.

This was on a recent Monday morning, just west of a Midtown Manhattan boathouse near West 44th Street. Ms. Driver had arrived in a sunshine-yellow Prada raincoat, armor against the unrelenting drizzle. She joked that she brought the weather with her.
