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

I WAS going to go to the Jaipur lit fest just for the parties and maybe bum around all day in a leisurely manner but then Huffington Post asked me to be the "roving reporter" and now my three days of lazy lit fest attending has been replaced by schedules, plans for stories and ridiculously early morning drives. I'm going to have such fun. In the meanwhile, while going over the schedule yesterday I saw the name Cornelia Funke which meant nothing to me but who K said was one of the best kids fantasy writers ever. We're reading Inkheart side by side, him in German and me in English (translation by my beloved Anthea Bell) & it's a very fitting follow-up to The Girl Who Ate Books because this book is alllll about book lovers. And adventures. Much like me tomorrow. #nowreading #250in2016 #readingchallenge #bookstagram
