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

Short review: The Leavers by Lisa Ko

Such a lovely book about a Chinese American boy who goes into foster care after his mother vanishes. A meditation on international adoption, growing up an immigrant and well meaning people who are nevertheless not your family. I'm enjoying it, especially since I recently read Behold The Dreamers and am feeling very immigrant lit in my novel choices. #bookstagram #mrmbookclub#nowreading #158in2018
