Hi Ace,

I'm glad the link answered your question. With regards to the
pronounciation, combine "K" with the British pronounciation of "laugh"
and you have it.

Ace, I'm not surprised you don't have a clue. It's tough figuring
hough to pronoughnce Clough if yough've never met that particular name
before. Since cloughseau-ga's not here to shough the way, I'll kick
ough with my suggestion that it's probably:

Cluff (as in tough)
Clow (as in bough)
Cloe (as in though)
Clue (as in through)
nor even:
Cloff (as in cough)

This is the correct way to address other Cloughs I know, though none
of them are as distinguished as the author you mention. Perhaps he has
his own unique take on the surname?

Footnote: I have heard rumours that Clough is moving from revealing
"State Secrets" in investigative non-fiction to presenting them in the
theatre. Now that a great British matriarch has left the stage, 'the
authorities' have felt able to release certain information which
provides sensational material for Clough's new career as playwright.
First performance is, appropriately enough, to be in a certain seaside
town famed for its R---l Pavilion.

Hope this helps.

Hi, Ace

If he's English, as I suspect, then his name would be pronounced
'Cluff' ... This is very much a Northern name.

I understand that there might be a person with this name associated

Best of luck
