Margaret Atwood is a Booker Prize-winning author (The Blind Assassin ) This novel is about a woman grappling with the tangled knot of her life. It tells the disturbing story of Elaine Risley, a controversial painter who returns to Toronto, the city of her youth. 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.
Elaine, the main character, begins her life traveling in the back of a car, and living in remote Canadian locations while her father researches rare insects. She enters a school and befriends a few girls her age. Elaine's relationships with those girls appear ordinary and do not become extraordinary until a girl, Cordelia, joins Elaine at school. Cordelia teases, ridicules, and torments Elaine for numerous years until Elaine faces a near-death experience. From then on, Elaine manages restore confidence in herself and move away from Cordelia's influence. The two girls resume their friendship in high school. Elaine is a dark character, as she tends to have a solemn outlook on life and never seems to display happiness.

Despite Elaine's success in art and love, she has never come to terms with her relationship with Cordelia. "Cat's Eye" follows Elaine's search for Cordelia and the path that Elaine follows as she tries to understand their "friendship."

Elaine's reflections are interesting and the way she overcomes Cordelia's evil spell leads one to believe that good can prevail over evil.
