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


Two things I love this weekend: Parvati Sharma's very readable, very gossipy life of Jehangir (it's like he's right there!) and this little squidtopus WHICH I MADE MYSELF. that's right, I crocheted it and invented the design (which was a happy random accident) and everything. Who wants to call my old SUPW teacher and tell her that I actually grew up to be Socially Useful AND Productive? #bookstagram #crafty #mrmbookclub
