Sometimes, the greatest achievements come from the humblest of beginnings. In the case of author Charles Morgan and his new novelKnights of the Secondhand Stew” (published by Trafford Publishing), the impetus was simple: “I just wanted to write something really outrageously funny,” he says.

Gavin Troop, a self-righteous and utterly willful little man, forms a residents’ group to complain about the smell of sewage in their suburb. But his blazing zeal takes the group higher and ever higher in the power politics of the land. Where will it end? How enormously will they change their suburb, their city, their land, even the world? And will Gavin, the son of an escapee from a sperm bank, finally find his father and understand why he was abandoned as a child?

“Today’s society needs more humor,” Morgan says. “What happened to Monty Python?” With the publication of “Knights of the Secondhand Stew,” readers are sure to find a good story, a good laugh and a knee-slapping good read.
