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'm STILL putting away my books, but to be fair, it might take less time of I stopped having a do-you-remember moment every ten minutes. But Target! How could I not photograph this excellent magazine for kids from the 90s? It had such fun articles and illustrations plus fab short stories by some excellent children's writers. I think it was the India Today group that brought it out and they should really resurrect it. #bookstagram #tbt
