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

Learning to get comfy on a bike again so I can ride with the rest of Berlin. Luckily, the Feld with its open spaces and empty runways is just a short walk from our sublet AND I biked home from it even! Still a little wary of traffic so not going to go across major intersections any time soon but it's fun and great exercise too in that spoonful of sugar making the medicine go down kind of way. The bike is K's parents old folding bike, now miiiine. What shall I call her (or him in German, but we'll ignore that)? #berlinstories #minnaindeutschland #bicyclelife
