Disturbing, hilarious, and compassionate, Cat's Eye is a breathtaking novel of a woman grappling with the tangled knot of her life.
Cat's Eye is the story of Elaine Risley, a controversial painter who returns to Toronto, the city of her youth, for a retrospective of her art. Engulfed by vivid images of the past, she reminisces about a trio of girls who initiated her into the fierce politics of childhood and its secret world of friendship, longing, and betrayal.
Elaine must come to terms with her own identity as a daughter, a lover, an artist, and a woman – but above all she must seek release from her haunting memories and confront the spectre of Cordelia, once her best friend and tormentor, who has haunted her for forty years.
Lovely reading voice. However, there were many repeated lines throughout, possibly where sliced recording errors haven’t been butted up correctly.
