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

The countdown has begun of my last five books to finish my #150in2017 Goodreads reading challenge! This is book number 146 and part of my goal to read more 1) Indian fiction 2)classic myth lit to see what other people have done in the space I'm working in currently and 3) books in translation. Yajnaseni has been recommended to me by practically everyone who has read it and I'm lucky there's a great English translation of the original Oriya classic. #bookstagram #mrmbookclub #nowreading
