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

Very much enjoying Ruskin Bond's autobiography Lone Fox Dancing (not to be confused with his reading memoir or his essays about his father, also out recently). Poor little Ruskin had such a sad and lonely childhood (with the only brief bright spot being his father, who died young) but his stories are as evocative as ever. #bookstagram #150in2017 #mrmbookclub #nowreading #bookstagramindia #ruskinbond
