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

What a perfect birthday I had. From the lead up party to the lovely dinner last night and today, at Broadway, a huge well stocked second hand bookstore where I spent a good two hours collecting this pile, and K offered to treat me to them all. Almost hid the Marian Keyes so you wouldn't notice my plebeian tastes, but hey, she's a great writer and I'm now 35, too old to pretend to only read "high literature." now in bed with Charlie Brooker's book of rants, followed by Japanese for dinner. Could a girl ask for more? I think not. #goanway #happybirthdaytome #bookstagram #secondhandbookshops

  1. Happy Belated Birthday eM! Been reading your blog and books from 25 to 35 - both yours and mine! So can totally relate to a lot of your throwbacks - mostly about books.
