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

Just taking a break from furiously writing to furiously reading. Part of my second hand haul, I've been looking forward to Love, Nina since I first heard of it ages ago. It's letters from Nina Stibbe to her sister, Victoria, while Nina works as a nanny at a posh literary London home in the 80s. Reminded me of another beloved set of diaries I adore: Jilly Cooper's The Common Years. Love, Nina is also a TV show now so I look forward to watching once I'm done reading. PS: SO close to finishing my #200in2016 reading challenge! #nowreading #bookstagram #mrmbookclub
