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

I've been wanting to read The Middlesteins since I first heard of it last year or the year before. The story of a morbidly obese woman and also her family and the people affected by her weight. Idk, have been feeling a little distracted with my reading lately, not fully absorbed, keep beginning books on my Kindle and then abandoning them. Maybe I'm doing too much too fast to not be able to focus but this book is nice, if not gripping, a nice afternoon read anyway. #bookstagram #150in2017 #mrmbookclub #nowreading
