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

This week I recommend reading my friend @janicepariat's brilliant third book: The Nine Chambered Heart which will make you think of your past loves with an entirely new eye. Follow it up with Possession, if you haven't read it already, another love story from an outside point of view. Lie on your sofa and ignore the looming summer. #bookstagram #mrmbookclub#nowreading #158in2018

  1. Hi! I read Possession a few years ago at university and I fell in love with it. Great choice of a book!
