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

If one MUST get one's period on a Saturday evening, at least one is being suitably pampered for the Snug As A Bug feels. "Hygge" as the Danes say. One glorious sprawling historical novel about the rise and fall of a royal family at the end of the British Raj in India PLUS a coming of age story of a powerful woman, Raj sounded like my kind of scene as soon as I heard about it. Then; serendipity! The doorbell rang with a man bearing chocolate and an invitation to dance next weekend when my cramps are all history. Could be worse, ladies, could be worse. #bookstagram #150in2017#mrmbookclub #nowreading #periodparty
