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

A good short story collection is like the best thaali meal. Everything won't be to your liking but you'll try all of it and like most or it and by the end, you gave a better understanding of what's representative of the food of the area. Nothing against "collected short story" books, I have one myself after all (Before, And Then After. Very good. Please read.) but as the introduction to this volume says the short story is meant to be read as a one off, each writer standing out for their own style and narrative. I'd recommend this volume for anyone looking for a fix. #bookstagram #mrmbookclub #nowreading
