Ever tried to read an author, abandoned them, then gone back a while later and discovered you adore their style? I tried to read Hemingway a few years back, was frustrated with his macho sensibility and lost interest. Last week I picked up a book of his short stories and fell in luuuuurve. His writing is gentle, yet unsentimental and frank, and I love the way he makes the simplest, most mundane moments of human behaviour and interaction extraordinary.

Has this happened to anyone else? Which authors?

I haven't had that experience. I tend not to go back to authors if I don't like them, but will re-read those I like. But it's interesting what you say about Hemingway, because I didn't particularly like his stories either. Found the themes very repetitive: hunting, bullfighting and Spanish Civil War. But, in light of what you said, I might try them again.
