    Hello, pardon this basic question, but can somebody please tell me how to pronounce this wonderful writer's name? He is one of my literary idols, but I feel silly for not knowing how to pronounce his name accurately. Many thanks!

    in x-sampa: [bOh\umil h\rabal]

    O = mid-open O (as is British English "lock"... er... at least I hope)
    h\ = voiced H (as in English word "horrible", just voiced - usually considered quite difficult for English speakers)
