Review:

In her book, Dorkismo: The Macho of the Dork, cultural critic Maria Bustillos compares the important people in a variety of fields and has come up with the following conclusion: They were all dorks. By dork, Bustillos means people who have the capacity to be themselves no matter what anyone thinks and do so with pride and self-confidence. If a corporate lawyer adores the cutesy Hello Kitty and is OK with that, he's a dork and maybe even wears Hello Kitty cuff-links. Dorkismo is Stephen Colbert taking out his 12-sided die on The Colbert Report, and David Foster Wallace admitting he bawled like a baby over The Bridges of Madison County. It's also fans writing about their love of Natalie Portman and people on message boards rhapsodizing about Pepperidge Farm Goldfish jingles.

Bustillos marries high-brow and low-brow in this cross-disciplinary text, and her delightfully breezy and intelligent writing will make readers want to shed their armor of irony and embrace their dorkiness. --hipsterbookclub.com, August 9, 2009

"I must mention that [this] book, Dorkismo: the Macho of the Dork, is pure gold. Don't just grab it for the [David Foster Wallace] chapter (good as it is) but for the celebration of everything that is dork." --Nick Maniatis --The Howling Fantods, September 7, 2009
