Authors you've finally come around to liking

I didn't enjoy Hemingway for years. Now, thanks largely to A Farewell to Arms, I see him in a different light.

I think it took these four or five years because I simply didn't appreciate what he was doing. For Whom the Bell Tolls seemed pretentious, stylistically, and the stories I read by him were, I felt, a tad overhyped. It's only now that I've read more by him and ABOUT him that I'm coming around.

Other authors I've come to enjoy more include Henry James and Paul Auster and, on the philosophy front, Julia Kristeva.

Still haven't changed my mind about Bukowski, though.
