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

Appearances! Bombay!

I realize having a book marketed to you is tedious, but you know how to make it stop right? Just buy it so much I won't have to keep talking about it. I'll just be all, "Oh yeah, I have two books out, whatevs." 


Soooo, you can totally come and watch me/get a signed copy (which may or may not increase in value over the next 100 years so think of it as an INVESTMENT. For your KIDS.)

Tomorrow I'm at the TOI Lit Fest at Mehboob Studios. In conversation with Anuja Chauhan and Nicola Morgan about teens and dissent within families--whether it's okay and whether teens are being listened to. This is all because I wrote a book about a young woman named Noor Khan Rai (half-Hindu, half-Muslim, all her own self, who is dissenting in her own way because her mum has just upped and left and there's mean girls and a VERY cute boy and a nice dreamy kissing scene PLUS MOAR.) (Here's a link to buy Split) (But if you're coming tomorrow morning buy it there because then I can sign it and say hi.)

11.15 am. Mehboob Studios Bandra. 

THEN I'm doing a reading and signing of Before, And Then After at a very lovely Bandra bookstore called Title Wave (which is the best name for a bookstore!) It'll be short and sweet and a nice way for you to segue into your weekend debauchery. 

5.30 pm, Title Wave Bookstore, Bandra (on Google maps!)

Before And Then After seems to be on a Kindle special deal today for like FIFTY FIVE RUPEES which is NOTHING, so buy it online here or come and meet me and get a hard copy and let me sign it. 

Here's the lovely Naina Redhu doing a reading from the book (which she loved) on her blog. 

Oh, and PS: Noor from Split is on Snapchat now. I'm trying a thing so I'm making her create her own Snapchat story. Are you on Snapchat? Add noorissplit. No spam/marketing, just storytelling.
