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

Genres of bad-news books I will buy and read no matter how many versions I've read before ranked by order

1) Anything about a mountaineering expedition gone wrong but ESPECIALLY tales of people who have died on the Everest.
2) Anything about how you made one TEENY TINY mistake and wound up in a foreign prison for forty years to life.
3) Anything involving a historic incident where a lot of people died and how unaware everyone was in the beginning.
4) The serial killer/rapist and his family life and how he was caught in the end.
5) How you lost everything and there is no redeeming quality to this book and WHY THE WAVE?
