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. -- with a bonus offer ., Univ of Minnesota Pr, 2004

Twitch and Shout: A Touretter's Tale - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 9780816644513

[ED: Taschenbuch], [PU: UNIV OF MINNESOTA PR], Lowell Handler has Tourette's syndrome, a disorder characterized by exaggerated facial tics, sudden jerking movements of the body and limbs, and explosive public outbursts, usually in the form of expletives and racial epithets. Although he is a successful and acclaimed photojournalist, Handler has often seen himself as an outsider--a social outcast. With courage and candor, he recalls the difficulties he suffered growing up, the confusion he experienced when doctors misdiagnosed his bizarre behavior as a psychological aberration, and finally how, restless and despairing, he embarked on a quest for answers. In "Twitch and Shout, Handler sets out, camera in hand, on a journey through less than savory parts of America. From a transvestite bar in Tampa to a flophouse in New Orleans to a community health center in New York, he meets a variety of people who, like himself, don't conform to the standards to conventional society. With a keen eye for detail and an acute sense of humor, this memoir perfectly captures the unique and unforgettable life of a Touretter.
