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

Back from Jaipur which is great for literature but not so great for actually, you know, READING. I'm getting reacquainted with my books again. Call The Midwife was a show I loved, and I've always been curious about the book it was based on, Jennifer Worth's memoir of living and midwifery in London's East End in the '50s. My fingers are too cold to type much more, but I'll add that this is also part of my reading more nonfiction resolution for 2016. Memoir counts right? Totally. #bookstagram #nowreading #250in2016 #readingchallenge
