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 is a mushy post.)Ten years ago I met a cute boy and asked him to a party and then took a wistful picture of him because I was in a bad relationship and he was the sort of person I wanted to be with and I didn't think that would happen. I posted this five years ago also, and I can never get over how our lives collided to make this happen, and the everyday stuff of a long relationship is more romantic in a weird sitting around in your underwear and being gross sometimes and all of it: sleeping, eating, living, having cats, farting occasionally, traveling together it's all so much better than I thought was possible ten years ago so I guess I'm reminding myself of that fact. #throwback
