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

Finished my language exam early (went well thanks!) so came to Khan Market's @fullcircleandcafeturtle for a book and a coffee. After very little deliberation, bought this one. Bonus to her incredible writing: the man next to me was super chatty until I showed him what I was reading. A nice easy way to display my politics and not be disturbed! You should've seen the face he made. 😁😁 #bookstagram #arundhatiroy #azadi
