Father of the Bride by Edward StreeterThe 50th anniversary edition of Edward Streeters heartwarming classic, Father of the Bride. Poor Mr. Banks! His jacket is too tight, he cant get a cocktail, and hes footing the bill....Hes the father of the bride.
Stanley Banks is just your ordinary suburban dad. Hes the kind of guy who believes that weddings are simple affairs in which two people get married. But when daddys little girl announces her engagement to Buckley, Mr. Banks feels like his life has been turned upside down. And any man with a daughter can appreciate Mr. Bankss feelings.
Kay: Now, Pops, please. If were going --
Mr. Banks: -- and whats his last name? I hope its better than his first one.
Kay: Pops, Im not going to sit here --
Mr. Banks: -- and where the hell does he come from -- and who does he think is going to support him? If its me hes got another guess coming. And who in Gods name --
To say the least, Mr. Banks isnt taking it well, and to make matters worse, he must host cocktail parties with the in-laws-to-be, initiate financial planning talks with Buckley, and moderate family conferences on who will be invited to the reception.
Who can blame him when he sinks so low as to offer Kay $1500 to elope?
But Mr. Banks holds his peace, and when the last wedding guest has departed from his confetti-matted house, he has his memories, and you have a merry record of his tribulations.
