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

Linkslutting around town
* Thank you all for coming through and commenting on the last post. I felt all loved again.
* The love of my life this week are lace up Doc Marten style, knee high boots. They're SO beautiful, even though they pinch my toes a weeny bit, what is pain when compared to style, right? (Okay, maybe a bit more than a weeny bit, but suck it up, toes! This'll make you stronger.) I got the idea of getting boots from this BRILLIANT new blog I have discovered (by 'discovered', I mean 'told about'). And she's like my shopping soul sister, practically, so I emailed her and we're going to meet soon! (In a non-stalker way, of course.) I tried to break in my new boots on a walk around town we did this Sunday, and the first hour went fine but by the end of it I was practically curled up in a ball and moaning. That's the tough part about boots, the breaking them in. I'm trying to wear them every day so by the end of it, they'll be all soft and comfortable.
* Oh yes, I remember now what else I promised to talk about. There's this Red Bull event that I'm going for, to watch a Formula One racer go up and down the Bandra-Worli sealink (Which, by the way? Is one of my top five most favourite bridges in the world.) Now, that's not usually my sort of thing, but I thought it might be fun to watch, so if there are any F1 fans amongst you, you should check it out too. It's on October 11, at 2 pm, and the driver's name is David Coulthard (and he's cute too). Here's a link to the website for more deets--but you should come and say hi and we can watch the car together.
