Resurrecting The Champ
Erik Kernan is a newspaper writer covering boxing for the Denver Times whose stories are always relegated to page 20 in the sports section. Then he finds the Champ, a former 185-pound contender who now lives homeless on the streets, and together the history of the great pugilist is written. Or rewritten. Because the Champ has actually been living the illusory life another boxer, one long dead. Starring Samuel L. Jackson and Josh Hartnett. With Rachel Nichols as the press babe Polly. Available at the Dallas Public Library where, since checking it out is without a price, it is priceless.
