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

When life gives you dough that refuses to rise, make flatbread. Have been dying to bake my own bread for ages and this new book makes me think like I can (just had a long Twitter exchange with the author troubleshooting my loaf.) but, as every home baker knows, bread is the toughest thing to get right. We'll be eating a lot of flatbread until I can make the perfect sandwich loaf, but who's complaining? Not I. #baking #domesticgoddess
