Problems with sorting on author name

I have been reading this forum for a while to try and understand how to set my list of a few thousand books in some sort of first or last name order, but it seems with authors having a first name and a last name, series number,and tag data, calibre places them in no particular order.
my first book in "alphabetical" order is e02 alan bennett,then e03 alan bennett,then Mcewan ian then ryan north 5th book is woods stuart ???
i have tried tweaks,"none" "invert" author 0 title 0 series 0 i have clicked on every possible button such as manage authors sort, sort author .
That kovid Goyal obviously knows is stuff to design calibre its a pity that for people like me (silver surfer) who desires simplicity i either have a forum full of ideas but not a simple settup guide.
thanks
