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

This is the most inspirational book I've read all year. It could not have come to me at a better time. I'm reviewing it with another for Open this week, but I'm going to keep this copy at my desk at all times to remind me that I'm doing OK, I'm doing the right thing, I'm heading towards that mountain even when I think it's really far away. Read it as a writer, a reader, an artist, a CREATOR of any kind. You'll thank me for it. #158in2018 #bookstagram #nowreading #mrmbookclub
