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

The Baader Meinhof phenomenon, aka the frequency illusion is a cognitive bias that makes you see a thing a lot more after you learn about it than before. (Like me and the Baader Meinhof phenomenon for example). I knew Louise Penny before last month, I'd read her first book a few years ago and never really got into it but then everyone started mentioning Louise Penny, friends, acquaintances, random newsletters I subscribe to so I decided to give her another go to see if she "took" this time, and friends, it is a go. I'm now reading book three of this series, starring a sweet, kind hearted inspector and a cozy village full of quirky characters and also MURDERRRRR. RIYL cozy crime and are longing for a murder mystery where the detective doesn't have a secret drinking problem or whatever. #bookstagram #mrmbookclub #121in2021 #louisepenny #stilllife
