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

One of the great joys of my post quarantine life is that we have access to K's mum's car, which I am now wildly in love with in a way I don't think I've ever been with any other car. It's a Mini Cooper! It's a CONVERTIBLE! and so despite the terrible heat wave we had (which is always weird, being hot in Europe, no?) we've been driving around with the top down, blasting music (lots of 99 Luftballons natch) and feeling very cool. This from yesterday when we daringly decided to go to the next village to have a DRINK in PUBLIC. Every place was ironically too crowded for our comfort so we settled on a small biergarten by the city hall (called the Rathaus which amused me) and K had a beer while I confused the waiter by ordering a vodka orange juice (the only non beer drink they had.) it was small, quiet, very basic and GLORIOUS. We had to fill a contact tracing form though which is apparently par for the course around here, a good idea I thought. Masks still on indoors but we sat on the patio. #minnaindeustchland #countrylife
