what happened ?

On seeing that generation a by Douglas Coupland had made the green carnation longlist it set me thinking why I not read any of his book since 2003 I brought all his books til then ,missed getting Eleanor Rigby and like a boat that has lost its mooring he was set adrift ,after reading his previous 8 novels .I wonder why I loved ,loved ,loved his earlier books so what happened ? He isn’t the only one Anthony Burgess was a favourite in my early twenties I read a number of his books but have read one in last five years ,so why do we let some writers drift off our radar so to speak ? has this happened to you ,or is it like a waiter juggling glasses you can only have so many writers in your plate at one time ? I love finding wonderful new voice but wish to re embrace some of my old friends again let them back into my heart

Is there a writer you loved and have left to drift away ?

do we out grow some writers maybe ?
