"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. Once thought to be a sign of possession, this neurological disorder causes sudden jerking movements and tics, as well as an uncontrollable propensity to curse.In this revealing memoir Handler tells of how Tourette's has shaped his life and provides insight into the strange symptoms that are often debilitating and alienating. As the title suggests, Twitch and Shout is no plea for pity; it is a heartfelt and often humorous effort to reclaim and humanize a disorder that can keep others at a distance.
