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

The first thing I did after I got my debit card back (after the old one was the victim of a burglary) was buy myself a new wallet and tote bag to replace the ones that were taken. My old wallet was Nappa Dori and a birthday present from K and it made me so angry and sad to think of all those memories (plus cards! Plus id!) that was taken away from me. The new wallet is this cheerful super indestructible eco friendly Tintin one and while my dad surprised me with a new Shakespeare and Co tote (which could be a clue if I see the old one floating about?) I got this one anyway because who does love a good bookish pun on a bag that can carry a lot of books, right? #delhidiary #whatibought #bookstagram
