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

Shitty ebook cover (so covered with an old ballet invitation) of this deliciously creepy classic which sort of sneaks up on you when you least expect it. I've always heard a lot about Shirley Jackson (a new biography out last year) but never got around to reading her. We Have Always Lived In The Castle is the story of a family who live in a village where everyone hates them. Told through the eyes of the winsome weird younger sister Merricat, it starts out slowly building you up for one thing and when you least expect it, starts to sucker punch you with twists. My favourite kind of narrative. #nowreading #bookstagram #150in2017 #mrmbookclub
