Bueno offers a discussion of how geek culture is found in literature, in an effort to expand the critical analysis of this topic beyond its presence in television and movies. Using examples from various literary works and drawing from concepts such as intertextuality, paratextuality, and hypertextuality, Bueno explores the nature of geeks and nerds and how they are found in novels such as Junot Díaz’s The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. The term geek metafiction, therefore, applies to the kind of literature where geek culture plays a central role.
