Robert Bedick's new collection of nine short stories, An Argument In Favor Of Television and Other Stories, reaffirms everything we learned about him from his well-regarded first novel, Tomas. That is, he is a writer who knows how to write. From Microwave, A Love Story (On Twitter) - a story that originally appeared in installments on Twitter - to The Eden Project - a story where two twenty-somethings attempt to re-create the Garden of Eden on a Twister mat within their Brooklyn apartment, Bedick shows that he knows how to bend all the usual rules to create a style and voice that are all his own. But he also proves with stories such as One Dead Grandfather and Limousines and Violins, that he knows how to use the classic elements of plot, character, and dialogue to create stories steeped in realism.
