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

An old favourite, Bulbul Sharma's My Sainted Aunts is everything I love about a family memoir. Short funny stories of various members of Sharma's extended family, from a child bride to a girl who hates school to the 75 year old widow who travelled to England for the first time, the stories are sweet and bring all the aunts to life vividly. Makes me think of my own extended family and what I could weave from their life stories. Read! #bookstagram
