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

What I'm Reading

Addie made a deal with the devil, she wanted to live unfettered forever. But everything comes with a price, in her case, she drifts through history and time, forgotten, never remembered, never able to make her mark on things. I loved this book, it felt dreamy even while the narrative was straightforward, no purple prose when regular black and white will do (biggest peeve these days, feeling impatient with a lot of books that are full of sound and fury signifying nothing.) it's a longish novel but a thoughtful one, and of you've been examining your own life lately, indeed who amongst us is not, then I'd urge you to read this. (7 books to go!) #bookstagram #mrmbookclub #120in2020 #veschwab #theinvisiblelifeofaddielarue
