art The Story of My Life is a new public mural by Logan Hicks at Houston and Bowery (NW corner). Hicks imagined how Spring and Greene Streets would look if the important people in the artist's life were walking on the same street at the same time. (His imagination was helped by photographing many of his actual peeps gathered together in the location).

photography At Hans P. Kraus, Jr. Fine Photographs, 962 Park [82nd/83rd] 212.794.2064, Adam Fuss Daguerreotypes & The Womb of the Pre-Raphaelite Imagination showcases the works of the contemporary photographer and his fascination with 19th century techniques.

movie Spalding Gray, the great writer and monologist, who died in 2004, starred in the movie Swimming to Cambodia in 1987. It was directed by Jonathan Demme and has a soundtrack by Laurie Anderson. The director will be at IFC on October 4, 7pm for a screening and discussion.

theater The bountifully talented Sarah Jones (Bridge & Tunnel) is in previews now at Manhattan Theatre Club with her new one-person show, SELL/BUY/DATE.

book The Nix, by Nathan Hill is the kind of novel invariably described as 'sprawling'—which, in this case means brilliant, hugely entertaining, but a little uneven. Ignore the last part.

tv Not unlike Sarah Jones, Tracey Ullman contains multitudes, on display in a new HBO series in which Ullman plays a Judi Dench who likes to act out more than act, Maggie Smith auditioning for a sci-fi movie, and she gives us a behind-the-scenes look at Angela Merkel. This is a NSFW preview. Ullman will be at 92Y for a screening and discussion on Sunday, October 23, 8pm.
