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


Fake smile, fake face, fake... Breasts? No, but M&S shifted their annual lingerie sale online this year and I DESPERATELY needed new bras for the future where I will hopefully have occasion to wear said bras. One of the garments I bought was a minimiser because the first place I gain weight is on my chest so I keep going up cup sizes while everything else stays the same for a few years but with the middle aged thickening. (as someone who resents exercise i am resigned to my belly). Anyway so a bunch of my clothes only zipped up two cup sizes ago like this dress which I wore only to see if the bra worked. It did! In celebration, I also put on some Just Because make up and took a selfie because it's always nice to go backwards in time. I really should work out though, everything is giving way. I probably shouldn't be talking about my bra in public, not if I want to be seen as a Serious Writer, but hello, this Serious Writer wears a bra, what can I do? I don't write with my tits but. #whatiworetoday #curves
