In a book that explores the phenomenon of stuttering from its practical and physical aspects to its historical profile to its existential implications, Marc Shell plumbs the depths of this murky region between will and flesh, intention and expression, idea and word. This provocative and wide-ranging book shows that stuttering has implications for myriad types of expression and helps to define what it means to be human.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Most stutterers don't want to talk about their stuttering, since it brings on more self-consciousness and more stuttering. A person may be so ashamed of his stuttering that he carries a card saying he is mute. This book is liberating for those who suffer from stuttering. It is also full of information about the origins of stuttering and the history of how people sought to define, control, or cure stuttering.
"Stutter" is a sterling presentation of difficulties encountered by people who stutter. It demonstrates that stutterers are alone in their quest for normalcy, yet share a kinship with many other people, some who stutter and some who do not. Furthermore, the enigma of stuttering--questions as to why stuttering has existed throughout time, why persons who stutter don't stutter when they sing, the ridiculous therapeutic permutations they run through--all of this is well discussed. The book is not only easy to read, but fun.
