Author pens a gripping tale

Writer’s eighth book, ‘In the Grip,’ draws from life in Delmar

— “A lot of the action takes place in a city that people might recognize as Albany and a suburb that people might recognize as Delmar,” he said.

Kutz said he enjoyed writing this novel and he took his time with the story. The book is a sizable read at 381 pages. It’s about love, loss and the relationship that develops between two men as Bornstein tries to deal with that loss. But Kutz said the narrator eventually comes to the “sickening” realization that he and his wife may have been a part of old Sanford’s games all along.

“The narrator is flawed, but so is everyone in the book, and that really stands out,” said Kutz. “No one is perfect.”

However, those flaws may have led Bornstein to lose the love of his life.

“In the Grip” was released in paperback on Friday, Sept. 18. It can be found at I Love Books in Delmar, the Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza, Amazon.com and as a Kindle e-book. The listing price is $15.
