Or “Wheeze-ner”? As a person who often has to explain how to pronounce my name (hard J? soft J?), I can see how the following website could be a lifesaver for those struggling to name that author.

Teachingbooks.net has a very helpful and extensive audio clip collection of authors pronouncing their names.
