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

Thoroughly enjoying this new book, historical fiction from India that has nothing to do with the Mughals or the British Raj. I knew nothing about the Chola empire before I began reading Empire by Devi Yesodharan but now with this sexy detailed narrative I feel like I'm fully immersed. I have to concentrate a bit while I'm reading because there's a lot of description of the war stuff which is not my strong suit, but it's so well researched I don't mind taking my time over it. #nowreading #bookstagram#150in2017 #mrmbookclub
