ELIOT GEORGE is the pseudonym of a retired academic and author of college books. The new series of David SEARCH novels reflects his own life from humble beginnings through meritocratic rise to older anger at the destruction of common sense and humour in an emasculated world controlled by the ideological disease of political correctness.
He is broadly educated and widely travelled, choosing to leave the country of his birth in the West for more congenial and less repressed though differently corrupt climes in Asia.
The series covers the author's attempts with realism and humour to make sense of a rapidly changing world from the end of the Second World War to the end of the first decade of the twenty-first century and in particular the great changes in the relationship between the two sexes.
This book tells the story of an international romance through the social history of the Seventies, a time with particular resonance to the first decade of the twenty-first century. It is also a powerful polemic, told with humour and realism as the world approaches the year 2012.
In particular, David tries to make sense of the great changes in the relationship between the sexes during that time.
SEARCH OVER (Sex and Love) is the third in the David quartet of which the first was SEARCH FOR THE WOMAN (Sex and satisfaction). Now in middle age and prematurely retired from full-time work, David leaves England to live in more congenial climes in the Philippines. This book follows his continuing search not only for the woman but also for wider happiness outside the socially troubled West.
