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

What I'm Reading


My Very Talented Poet Friend (sounds like that mnemonic na? My Very Educated Mother?) @chandrama_poetry has a new book out and it is GORGEOUS. My aunt sent me a copy and it was waiting for me at my mum's house today, what a lovely and appropriate Diwali treat. #bookstagram #poetry #nowreading #mrmbookclub
