    Poor performance

    The New Yorker is always interesting, literate and informative. These recordings are marred by frequent mispronunciations of common names – Goethe, Trieste, Courtauld. In the current issue, 12/3/18, the reader consistently reads Craig Claiborne's name as CLAREBORNE. And here, as in many previous issues, pronounces the name of the French novelist, Proust, like PROUD. Perhaps they can find a reader with a college education? It does a disservice to a magazine designed for an educated audience to employ an uneducated speaker.
