My latest book is The One Who Swam With The Fishes.
"A mesmerizing account of the well-known story of Matsyagandha ... and her transformation from fisherman’s daughter to Satyavati, Santanu’s royal consort and the Mother/Progenitor of the Kuru clan." - Hindustan Times
"Themes of fate, morality and power overlay a subtle and essential feminism to make this lyrical book a must-read. If this is Madhavan’s first book in the Girls from the Mahabharata series, there is much to look forward to in the months to come." - Open Magazine
"A gleeful dollop of Blytonian magic ... Reddy Madhavan is also able to tackle some fairly sensitive subjects such as identity, the love of and karmic ties with parents, adoption, the first sexual encounter, loneliness, and my favourite, feminist rage." - Scroll

Think of this as a NOTE not an actual POST
* I've been ill with the flu and it's been NASTY, but on the plus side, even my maid says I've lost weight. Hurrah for the wasting illnesses!
* I've started a new blog, over here, which I'm very excited about.
* I'm up for a Golden Quill award--please go vote for me. I've never won anything *sad face*
*Did I mention I'm going to Goa tomorrow? With JC and Small and another friend, Bulbul? I love Goa in the monsoons. Sigh. This should be a fun recuperation.
