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 have been SO busy reading books for work (new column soon!) that I felt this evening was a good time to zone out with an old favourite. Judy Blume is still one of my author inspirations and Just As Long As We're Together is the complex girl friendship book I so needed when I first read it at 12 or 13. I think that copy fell apart so here's a photo of a slightly newer edition plus mangoes sent to me from Hyderabad. It feels like a summer vacation type of day. #youngadult #judyblume #bookstagram #mrmbookclub
