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. Disturbing, hilarious, and compassionate, Cat’s Eye is a breathtaking novel of a woman grappling with the tangled knot of her life.

作者簡介

瑪格麗特.愛特伍Margaret Atwood

  1939年出生於渥太華,是加拿大最傑出的小說家、詩人,也寫短篇故事、評論、劇本,並創作兒童文學與圖像小說。她是《紐約時報》暢銷作家、公認的「加拿大文學女王」,更是諾貝爾文學獎呼聲極高的重量級候選人,至今已發表四十多部作品,海外讀者散布四十多國。愛特伍在1985年以小說《使女的故事》榮獲「總督文學獎」,2000年《盲眼刺客》獲英國曼布克文學獎;2005年獲頒愛丁堡圖書節啟蒙獎,得獎理由是對世界文學與思想的傑出貢獻;2008年榮膺西班牙艾斯杜里亞斯親王文學獎;2016年獲英國筆會/品特文學獎。代表作「瘋狂亞當」三部曲正由美國HBO改拍為電視影集,其餘作品在世界各國亦獲獎無數。

  愛特伍與莎翁的首次邂逅發生在1950年代,當時她在多倫多讀高中,漫長的寫作生涯中,她一直認為莎士比亞影響自己創作甚深。她說:「《暴風雨》在某些層面上,可說是一齣早期的多媒體音樂劇,要是莎翁活在今日,他想必會窮盡手邊所有特效科技來呈現這齣戲;然而《暴風雨》最引人入勝之處,正是劇中留下的許多未解問題。我用盡渾身解數來挑戰這個故事,太過癮了!」

  Margaret Atwood is Canada's most eminent novelist, poet and critic. Her books include The Edible Woman, Surfacing, Lady Oracle, Alias Grace, Cat's Eye, which was short-listed for the Booker Prize and The Handmaid's Tale, which won both the Arthur C. Clarke Award for Science Fiction and the Governor-General's Award, was short-listed for the Booker Prize and made into a major film.
