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

Just lying here on my reading sofa, gazing up at my books, realising that some of my best friends have been dead for so many years I've basically been hanging out with their ghosts. They draw me in, words written by people who were once as alive as you and me and who have now been dead for longer than I've existed and still, like echoes, like portals, like a mirror that only shows you what it wants to, they're always here. That's my one wish for myself as a writer too: let me live on, let me live forever and ever and ever. #bookstagram #shelfie #ghosts
