Publisher Description

Controversial painter Elaine Risley returns from Vancouver for a retrospective of her work. Here, in Toronto, the city of her youth, she confronts the submerged layers of her past – her unconventional family, her eccentric and brilliant brother, the self-righteous Mrs. Smeath, and the two men Elaine later came to love in diverse and sometimes disastrous ways. But it is the enigmatic Cordelia, once her tormentor, then her best friend, whose elusive yet powerful presence in her life Elaine finally comes to understand. The realm of childhood and growing up, with its secrecies, cruelties, betrayals, and terrors, has never been so brilliantly evoked. By turns disquieting, humorous, compassionate, haunting and mordant, Cat’s Eye is vintage Atwood.

Echoes my own relationships

...with other women.

This was the first Atwood book I read and I was instantly hooked on her writing.

This book echoes the complicated dynamics of womens’ relationships, starting in childhood and the psychological traumas that girls often inflict on each other in childhood and how those relationships shape the inner lives of grown women.
