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

Not a funny book (in fact, Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout is very sad) but the posing for photographer @madamexmeow made me laugh. We've been rearranging furniture today and in all that, created the perfect reading book with an ancient rocking chair, Christmas bunting and a lamp close by. #nowreading #bookstagram #200in2016 #mrmbookclub #booknook
