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

Hauz Khas Village has a new shop called Treasures Of The Himalayas or some such. It may not even be new, since I am barely ever there but was today to work from a café. Full of the sort of stuff you'd get in Dharamshala or whatever, but I still bought this delicate floral solid perfume to slip into my purse. It's called (and I'm sure this influenced my decision) Heart's Erection. Boing! #delhidiary #wotibot
