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

Home again! And immersed in reading these two books that are basically Rich People Problems, South Asian edition. We That Are Young is one of the best Delhi books I've read, a retelling of King Lear with a business family, the tragedy not even translated in bits where the author uses Hindi for emphasis. Gorgeous book and a birthday present so I love it even more. Austenistan is a romp, retelling Austen through a Pakistani lens. I'm putting it in my books column this month, and while I have a few quibbles, overall it's a super fun read. #bookstagram #mrmbookclub#nowreading #158in2018
