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

I'm lucky that I have enough bookshelf space for all my childhood favorites as well. Going through my Enid Blyton shelf today I came across these three old friends who I had almost forgotten about. I just sat down and began to read again immediately and it all came back to me: Pop Biscuits and Moon Face and midnight picnics and magic everywhere. I keep saying the first children's fantasy I ever read was Narnia, but actually come to think of it, it was the Faraway Tree series. I hear they're turning it into a movie now but it'll never be as good as the one we all had inside our heads. #nostalgia #bookstagram #enidblyton #farawaytree
