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've been so busy with house & freelance work, I haven't done much (any) Real Writing recently. (if my editor is reading this: I'm sorry! I'm back on track now!) Warm up writing is like stretching before you exercise, important to keep your muscles from cramping. I'm going to retell a fairy tale, a quick short to get my brain back in the zone, and here's my source material, an ancient falling apart copy I bought in London for three pounds. As Coldplay says, "Nobody said it was easy, I'm going back to the start." #bookstagram #writinglife
