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

Mark your calendars!
It's been most exciting and I will, of course, tell you the whole stoy when I get back. I'm in Delhi now and my mother is super excited about television debut type things, so she's been telling people all day. I'm half embarrassed and half really pleased.
Anyway, my net is really slow here, so I'm going to go. Remember the camera adds ten pounds though, when you're watching. :)
