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

Bedtime reading. I've read and loved all of Manju Kapur's other books. Okay, maybe not ALL: A Married Woman and Custody left me a bit cold, but Difficult Daughters is fantastic as is Home, both of which I've reread a zillion times. Today went shopping with my mum and aunt for early birthday presents for me. Two gorgeous dresses and Manju's newest. Cannot wait to snuggle up in bed on the first really cold day of the year with my sleeping beauty and read. #bookstagram #200in2016 #nowreading #mrmbookclub
