Ok, let me see if I am getting this right.

Currently, my books are sent like this

Title: Origin
Author: Brown,Dan

When I do this, it is shows as Dan Brown on the device, and is sorted by the last name.

However, on Content and Devices, the book shows as:

Title: Origin
Author: Brown, Dan - and the list only shows the last name.

All my documents only show the last name in Content and Devices.

When I send the book with the author being "Dan Brown", then it will sort the author as "Dan Brown" putting it in the book authors starting with "D", not "B". It will however, show the full author name in Content and Devices.
