A Bold Artist, a Quiet Texas Town and the Heritage of the Borderland

Sunday 23:41 GMT

There are two ways to tell the story of how the artist Michael Tracy ended up living in the tiny Texas border town of San Ygnacio.

The other version is far more meaningful, according to Mr. Tracy, and it has to do with electromagnetic fields, unseen powers drawing town and artist together. “I do think that is probably true, just like birds are able to negotiate flying from northern South America to the Gulf Coast without any landmarks,” he said.

Hanif Kureishi: my beautiful box-set binge

Saturday 11:49 GMT

I’ve barely left the house in the last 18 months because I’ve been watching what for me seems like a lot of TV, around five hours a night.

And the episode in Breaking Bad where the former chemistry teacher Walter White buries the money he has accumulated by selling crystal meth – transforming the spoils into waste or shit – is one of the most illuminating in all art.

This, at least, will please set designers who won’t have to endure the humiliation of specially hired graffiti artists daubing “Homeland is racist” in Arabic on their sets a second time.
