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

My first new book for the new year! (finished Six Four yesterday and mostly enjoyed it.) I've only ever read Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier and this isn't a Gothic supernatural book like most of her others. Instead it's about a family: three siblings and their peculiar relationship with each other. I love stories about large families, especially ones like this that go backwards and forwards through time and Du Maurier is such a master of the little details that it's been a quick greedy read, only begun last night and I'm already halfway through. #bookstagram #mrmbookclub #nowreading #158in2018
