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

Today in Photo

Just a monkey looming over Boxi. (But really celebrating both Austrian artist Gabriel von Max and his most famous painting "Monkeys As Art Critics" from which this is a detail. von Max, I find from further Googling, really liked painting monkeys, I mean so much that if you knew him back then you'd be like "oh the monkey guy." He owned a capuchin monkey which he then bred in Munich and then painted them all both living and dead.) Anyway this was just street art when I saw it and photographed it yesterday but now I'm looking at the wise little face of the monkey looking down on all of us and thinking "Huh. This shit is deep." Who's judging me, Monkey? #graffiti #streetart #berlinna #boxhagnerplatz
