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

Reviewing next week: one of the books of the year, Stephanie Danler's Sweetbitter, a novel about the food service industry. I think what we eat and how we eat it has become a major conversation in the last five years, some of us are obsessed by it, and on that basis alone, very curious about this book. Look out for the review soon! #nowreading #250in2016 #readingchallenge #bookstagram
