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 first Ken Follett! Fun, but very pedestrian prose. It's all about WW1, several different characters intersecting and occasionally having clunky sex. However the story's quite gripping so I think I'll finish the trilogy despite a few eye rolls here and there. It's not BAD writing, you understand, it's just not great. But the story whizzes along and there's plenty of battle detail if that's your thing. #bookstagram #nowreading #121in2021 #kenfollett #fallofgiants
