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

I'm a certain kind of Anglophile when it comes to reading, perhaps we can lay the blame firmly at Enid Blyton's door but give me a book about quiet British life in villages or even quiet British portraits in cities, not dating later than the '50s, and I'm hooked. Chronicles Of Fairacre is just that: fictional pen and ink sketches of a country school teacher's life. Miss Read is a pseudonym, but Dora Saint, the woman behind her, was exceedingly popular in her time, other people feeling just as I did about the coziness of her stories. #bookstagram #150in2017 #mrmbookclub #nowreading
