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

One of the blurbs describes this as being akin in humour and desperation to Fleabag, and I've got to say, I agree. A quiet book, one woman's mental breakdown vis a vis her family, specifically her husband but you all know I love to read (and write) quiet books. So funny and wise and also so devastating that I read it all in 24 hours and adored it. You'll like it too, specially if you've been struggling recently. It ended hopefully. I like hope. #bookstagram #mrmbookclub #121in2021 #sorrowandbliss #megmason
