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

Delightful afternoon just begun at Goa's Ark, a lovely outdoor restaurant full of farm animals. (No pigs, but several chickens, some ducks, rabbits and guinea pigs. Horses also but they're out for the day.) A hen that resembles Donald Trump is hiding in the couch next to me, I have this fantastic book and also a mountain of work, but a massive lunch has made me nearly horizontal. We're leaving in two short weeks, back to cold old Delhi so trying to vary our daily routine a bit. Read Case Histories if JK Rowling as Robert Galbraith appeals to you, and also attempt to do so in similar settings. #mrmbookclub #bookstagram #150in2017 #nowreading #goanway
