Coupland on Chabon (only mildly out of context): "I once went to a Michael Chabon reading, and he pronounced the word, ‘saxophonist’ to rhyme with ‘sarcophagus,’ and to this day, if I read his stuff, a voice in the depths of my subconscious shouts out every 10 seconds Saxophonist! Saxophonist!"
I will try rereading Chabon mentally adding 'Saxophonist! Saxophonist!' every 10 seconds. It may improve him.
