Josey Claypool begins the summer before her senior year at a carnival, where a fortune teller with milky-white eyes gives her a foreboding tarot reading. She’s spooked, but nothing could prepare her for the following day when two strange men show up at her front door.
Josey is kidnapped at gunpoint and brought to a pink cabin in the woods where she is held prisoner. In her darkest moment, the fortune teller appears and gives her a deck of tarot cards, which she must cast and interpret in a fight for her life.
In this work of speculative autofiction, award-winning author EV Knight reclaims the narrative of her own past in an exploration of trauma, agency, and survival.
“A harrowing tale reminiscent of The Last House on the Left, Three Days in the Pink Towerdeftly weaves darkness and triumph into an unforgettable story. EV Knight is a powerful voice in horror, and this book is not to be missed!”—Sonora Taylor, award-winning author of Little Paranoias: Stories and Seeing Things
“EV Knight’s stunning power of redemptive storytelling as a way to claim self & soul from the heart of darkness is as equally terrifying as it is inspiring. Knight is an artist at the top of her game showing everyone how to reshuffle the cards they are dealt. Knight’s astonishing page turner knocks you over the edge of your seat then holds you dangling by a razor thin rope until the very last sentence. Three Days in the Pink Tower should be required reading for all humans.”—Sasha Graham, author of The Magic of Tarot: Your Guide to Intuitive Readings, Rituals, and Spells
“This novella is the author’s powerful, no-holds-barred act of revenge. She’s taking back what is hers. A truly riveting read.”—Mercedes M. Yardley, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Little Dead Red
