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

So, my Facebook page is about to hit FORTY THOUSAND LIKES. (I know, right? I have no idea how that happened, seeing as it basically lay fallow for several years till I linked it to my Instagram and noticed a crazy amount of activity.)

To celebrate, I'm doing a week of book giveaways starting as soon as we hit that elusive Four Oh. I've asked my writer friends to participate, and you should totally come and play. I have about three hundred likes to go, which is nothing. NOTHING.

Here's the page! Enjoy! Good luck!
