I'm trying to find a book I read in the 80's (I believe it was early to mid 80's) that I think I purchased from the Science Fiction Book Club. What I can remember about the story (these may or may not be major plot points):
- There was more than one book in the series.
- The story revolved around one man.
- In the early part of the first book the man tries to drive back home in his car, but the car, sensing he is drunk, doesn't allow him to drive and instead the car takes him home in a manner that is slow and annoying to the drunk man. Later on, the man discovers a secret about how society works that the people in control want to keep hidden. In this instance I think the car is overridden and drives him home or maybe to the police station(?) in the manner in which it did when he was drunk.
- Because of what he learns he becomes a rebel after being a somewhat well off person in society.
I read this a long time ago, so I'm not too sure about the accuracy of these details. Does anyone know what this is?
