Twitch and Shout: A Touretter's Tale by Lowell Handler

Lowell Handler has Tourette's syndrome, a disorder characterized by exaggerated facial tics, sudden jerking movements, and public outbursts. Although he is an acclaimed photojournalist, Handler has often seen himself as a social outcast. 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 people who, like himself, don't conform to conventional society. With a keen eye for detail and an acute sense of humor, this memoir perfectly captures the unforgettable life of a Touretter.
