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

Normally I don't like to read the Big Trend Book when everyone else is reading it (I'm hipster like that) but my mum got me this signed copy from Siddhartha Mukherjee's Delhi launch so I jumped on the bandwagon anyway. Non fiction isn't my jam, but absolutely devouring The Gene, because of its fascinating subject. Side note: what are cats for if not to prop up heavy books on their bums? #nowreading #250in2016 #readingchallenge #bookstagram #mrmbookclub
