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


A little drunken posing at @samitbasu's where we were reunited after being separated by the pandemic etc etc. (he also took this photo.) Discussed: publishing, foreign agents and posh people in general. Not discussed: putting up a photo on the 'gram of a dress everyone's already seen a million times but also to say something about favourite clothes and how each time you wear a dress you love, you remember the last times you wore it plus your red Converse make their first appearance this season which is always fun. #whatiworetoday
