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


Spent all morning at two excellent yard sales: A Vintage Affaire where I bought ₹3000 worth of clothes (two bags full!) and the Friendicoes Yard Sale where I got this gorgeous 1962 atlas and The Cake Bible for ₹200 each. Wondering what to do with this atlas now: wallpaper the walls with old maps? But it is a first edition so maybe hang on to it as a keepsake? The sales are on today all day and tomorrow so go shop for a good cause. #impulsebuy #charity #bookstagram #delhidiary
