'Seating Arrangements' by Maggie Shipstead

<b>Release date</b>: June 12, 2012<BR><BR>

<b>Why to throw it in your beach bag</b>: If you're missing "Revenge," turn off your television and pick up this book. Call us crazy, but we detect a note of Truman Capote in Maggie Shipstead's satirical voice. The novel takes place on an island in New England at a family vacation home, where the Van Meter family is preparing for a wedding. There's scandal, seduction, and plenty of bad behavior. We're definitely hoping Shipstead's first book won't be her last.<BR><BR>
