Tabernacle is a work of fiction in the dark comedy, surreal thriller, and cynical realism genres, and was penned by author Marc Cavella. The novel tells the tale of protagonist Edward Jones, who works for a unique company whose morals are less than outstanding. The plot centers on his epic journey to complete a ‘sales’ job for Dr. Jared Young, the company’s latest target. Edward will stop at nothing to close this deal and get his commission, including an impromptu adoption and a whole host of other extreme measures. What follows is a surreal and darkly comedic adventure that examines human nature, fatherhood, greed, and the price of success.
Author Marc Cavella does a wonderful job of creating a dark work of speculative fiction so closely rooted in reality that it’s kind of scary. Fans of the likes of Black Mirror will enjoy the conceptual basis of the tale as well as Edward’s cheerful presentation as a central anti-hero to the tale. The humor is totally appropriate and nail-biting to fit this juxtaposition of the surreal and the macabre, with plenty of witticisms in the dialogue and moments of narrative joy. I particularly enjoyed the story arc with the fatherhood theme, which was surprisingly poignant and serious amid the dark goings-on of the tale as a whole. Overall, Tabernacle is an accomplished work of fiction that will highly impress those with a dark sense of whimsy and a thirst for a truly unique tale.
