Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hip, funny, and humane, a distinctive memoir of life with Tourette's Syndrome

"Wonderful, compassionate, funny, instructive, inspiring and flat-out brilliant", said The New York Daily News about the award-winning 1995 documentary film, "Twitch and Shout". Narrator, associate producer, and photographer for that project, Lowell Handler has lived with Tourette's Syndrome his entire life. The neurological disorder causes sudden jerking movements and tics, as well as an uncontrollable propensity to curse. Despite this, people with Tourette's work as surgeons, airline pilots, actors, and professional athletes.

In this tremendously appealing book, Handler reveals how the disorder has affected him and shaped his world, as well as providing insights into the symptoms of Tourette's, how it was discovered, and how people with the syndrome are regarded by others. As the tone of the title suggests, Twitch and Shout is no plea for pity, but a wry and ambitious effort to reclaim and humanize a disorder that can keep others at a distance.
