"This is the ultimate combination of an off-kilter narrative and existential dread. Chase Griffin's eccentric writing has climbed to a new and perhaps unexpected level with Darling. Nothing seems tangible or absolute in this crestfallen tale about something that is sadly so grounded in reality. There is an almost haunted atmosphere that can be felt throughout this transcending experience. It’s like a mist slowly rising that only Chase’s words seem to cut through and an echo of harmony can be heard at the end of each sentence. His style and this story are far too unique to be compared to other authors. Instead, I leave you with the idea that if Robert Eggers and Alejandro Jodorowsky were given a similar writing prompt, they might somehow come close to this." -Mallory Smart

"If you’ve been hit by a car, you know there’s a moment before your brain processes the pain where you consider whether you’re alive or whether you’re not. Chase Griffin’s “Darling” does this, too. In a literal sense, he describes the aftermath of a hit and run, but it doesn’t stop there. It’s a thermodynamics lesson, while you’re in a state of entropy. Through his characters, Griffin turns the story around on you, forcing you to consider each decision in your life and how it’s brought you to this moment, eating pizza with the paramedics as Darling bleeds out on the pavement. And you’ll be grateful." -Joshua Bohnsack
