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 Magicians Assistant by Ann Patchett

I'm going to try and log ALLLLL the books I read this year on Instagram as well as just writing down the names for myself just as an experiment, and so you can see that when it comes to a certain type of fiction I read so rapidly, I'm done in a day while other books take dayZZZ sometimes even weeks. I read fast, which makes it easier for me to read a lot. I also write fast. Sometimes I slow myself down on purpose but usually I go with the flow and enjoy the breathlessness of it. Ann Patchett has been coming as "recommended for you" for a while & I loved A State Of Wonder so bought this second hand. (I love Anne Tyler, another Anne! And her style is similar.)Soft slow building sweet. #bookstagram #mrmbookclub #nowreading #158in2018
