A number of people--my English teacher, for instance; David Foster Wallace; Amy Hungerford of Yale--have pronounced Pynchon's last name as PIN-chun, as opposed to pin-CHAWN. Yet, on his guest spot on The Simpsons, the man himself pronounces it as the latter. What is the correct pronunciation? It's a silly question, to be sure, but it's been bugging me.

wouldn't you agree that in almost every instance there is but one unparalleled expert in the question of how to pronounce one's name?

:) What a silly question, you're right.
