In Philadelphia for a convention

Expect blogging to be light--but I hope to get to some more Petina Gappah and a wonderful book by Madeleine St. John.

Query for those in Great Britain--is St. John as a last name still pronounced sinnjinn, or is it more like St. John?


  1. Steven - As a surname I've only heard it pronounced as sinjin.

  2. Dear Anthony,

    Thanks for the information. It will come as no surprise that in the States she would be Madeleine Saint John until she spoke up and corrected us all.
