The Champ - a Kindle ebook by Daniel Martin Eckhart

Free promotion on Amazon from 10-15 August 2014

This is the story of Wilber Patorkin. At the tender age of 115 he's the oldest man alive in the United States of America and he has three months left to live. His body is failing him gloriously, his legs will barely carry him, his quivering lips and dentures turn his words into meaningless babble... and yet he has the clearest brain and the brightest eyes you'll ever come across.

When you join Wilber on a most unlikely journey through his final months, you'll discover that the old man just may be the most powerful person on the planet. Come along, discover his world of friendship and kindness, a world without limits. And, as Wilber would tell you with that singular smile of his, you may also find yourself along the way.

If you'd like to meet Wilber personally, visit him on Facebook - he'll be glad to hear from you!

Critical acclaim: "Eckhart has created a wonderfully warm and eccentric main character in 115 year old Wilber Patorkin." - "A story of friendship, mortality, and good vs. evil, it was so good I couldn't put it down." - "A crossover between Amélie Poulain and Benjamin Button" - "The style is a compelling mix between Stephen King & JD Salinger."
