I worry they must be arming these Iowa students with copies of Catcher in the Rye The Great Gatsby and enough existential end of empire ennui to fell a country club or this weary reader at leastSeating Arrangements is the story of the Van Meter family who is preparing for the eldest daughter's marriage at the family compound on a Nantucket style island More specifically it's a psychological portrait of the family patriarch Winn a grasping thoroughly unlikeable protagonist who has all of the aforementioned Gatsby ambition with none of the relatability The plot moves along well enough but it's cluttered with the usual distress signa
