Wedding weekends seldom lack complications, but problems seldom run as rampant as they do in Maggie Shipstead's well-turned debut Seating Arrangements. Presiding over the novel's Cape Cod island nuptials is snobbish clubman Winn Van Meter, the Harvard graduate father of Daphne, the bride, who happens to be seven months pregnant. The awkwardness of the occasion doesn't stop there: The maid of honor is suffering from a broken heart; the groom's friends harbor their own agendas; and Winn's own unflappable self-control seem to be slipping under the assaults of bridesmaid Agatha's cleavage and reflex flirtatiousness. A never to be forgotten weekend; a B&N Recommends selection now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
