So Franny and Zooey is one of my favorite books, to the point where I carry a copy of it in my purse to read whenever I have a chance. And every so often, somebody notices the book and asks me what I am reading. And then I am faced with a dilemna:
How does one prononce Zooey's name? Is it Zoo-ey, as it looks like it would be phonetically pronounced, or is it
Zo-ey, like the common name?
Because I feel pretty ridiculous not knowing how to say the name of my constant literary companion.
