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

Thanks to kind friend @sruthijith for the gift of an Amazon voucher which I spent many happy hours figuring out what to buy with yesterday. Books obviously, birthday books are special and I chose these at random but now realise how much they reflect my state of mind. All right from top to bottom: a murder mystery series I want to get into set in Canada, an amazing collection of short stories, Daphne du Maurier's YA novel and travel writing on the American South. I've also just began a reading journal to keep track of my books. #bookstagram #mrmbookclub #nowreading #birthdayletters
