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

Series. I love my library, and today with a whole bunch of hassles, I need to remind myself of the stuff I love. This is from my children's section, which, because of age and nostalgia, I'm way prouder of than the better looking adult books which are on the left. From top to bottom: LM Montgomery, The Babysitter's Club and the Enid Blyton mystery series. #bookstagram #shelfie

  1. The stuff of my childhood too. Not one for Nostalgia though. So I don't think I have these anymore. I've kept the bound Tinkles for my kid though. For me, its now my Kindle and my GOT book collection(the story is so complex, might need it to refer back ;)) .
