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

Before And Then After


My new book is OUT! 

It's full of stories.  I'd say more but my laptop is still at the shop so I'm writing this on my phone.  Okay, okay, I guess II can say a little more. 

The first story is all about young writing and India's cray literary scene. And sex. 

The second story is about a famous superstar who dies & how his kids deal with the aftermath because he was a recluse. 

My favourite story?  Gosh. So hard to say! For content,  maybe the one about the prostitute's cat because CATS! OR ooh, the last one about a mermaid who was adopted by humans. Or the one about a girl whose dead best friend rings her doorbell one day. 

Actually I kinda love them all. 

It says pre order but I think the book is already in stores & definitely already on the Kindle so maybe Amazon just needs to update. 

 I hope you love it.
