The Origins of “Michael Pemulis”?

October 1, 2009

A little post-IJ miscellany, and sorry if this already made the rounds while I was out: The website of n + 1 recently ran a short piece about an album released way back in 1987 by one “Michael Pemulis”:

When I pulled the album out last September, though, I noticed it had been recorded in Phoenix, where some of Infinite Jest takes place, and released in 1987, the year that Wallace graduated with an MFA from the University of Arizona.

The article’s writer, Michael Casper, does some digging and sheds a little light on Wallace’s MFA days.
