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


Slightly (very?) cheesy marking anniversaries on social media especially when the co-anniversary person isn't even on this thing but I'm happy today. Or, I'll rephrase: I'm happy and today is a good day to stop and think about that happiness. I didn't think I'd ever find love (this was a bit defeatist for the grand old age of 28 but in my defence, a lot had happened to me in the decade before), was content to be a social single woman with her cat and her books and look how life turned out. We began, eight years ago, by meeting on what would be the first of our long journeys together and two years ago we made it legal so we could travel easier (and you know love etc) but I also love the time we spend at home. (oh, the mush! I'll stop now! Happy anniversary darling!) (📸 by @flackio in Lecce)
