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

Juuuust about enough of a sore throat and a cough to justify lying in bed all day today with a book and a sleeping cat. David Mitchell is eminently readable, another introduction to my "favourite authors" list by K, and The Bone Clocks is no less. Already the passages sing, the epicness sprawls, and the language is so light and easy you're halfway through before you know it. #bookstagram #nowreading #250in2016 #readingchallenge
