Bought 24 Jun 2007 – Bookends

An excellent, uncompromising memoir of a life, as he puts it, “with Tourette’s rather than OF Tourette’s”. Van Bloss is extremely honest and lacks self pity. He tries to give a clear picture of exactly what it’s like to have Tourette’s, then weaves it into his life story. Not just another “misery memoir”; this guy can *write*, and I hope he has started to write fiction too, as he mentions at the end of the book.

I am going to register this on BookCrossing and offer it on a bookring, to share this remarkably clear, lucid and readable memoir.
