The Way In

After M. R. James’s ghost story, “The Mezzotint,” the picture of

the mansion watched for change becomes the camera view on

internet, where anyone may go and view the entrance to a home.

They’ll not stop there but scroll along the edges of the scene, to

follow curves of driveways, walks or, now emboldened, cut across

the lawn, find entry through a window to our private lives.
