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

Today in Photo

Sent by a friend at Hyderabad airport. We tried to figure out whether I was number one and decided to say I was, considering otherwise random placement and the word "chart." yay! Also I'm at Bombay airport and got caught in the act of pushing Before, And Then After to a more prominent shelf. Sales guy tried to move it back, I looked pleading and said, "but it's my book!" "your book?" "my book!" "you have written it?" I tried to look less sleepy and more intelligent. So he moved Jhumpa for me and bumped me up a shelf. Then I went off to look for Split (because I'm marketing two books now which is totally not overwhelming or anything). But yay! NUMBER ONE! (In a teeny airport bookstore in Hyderabad, but STILL.) #bookstagram #BeforeAndThenAfter #SplitTheBook
