For example, Holy the Firm book is what Dillard comes up with as she looks at the mountains and sea: Land is a poured thing and time a surface film lapping and fringeing at fastness, at a hundred hollow and receding blues. If God were to blast such a service to bits, the congregation would be, I believe, genuinely shocked. These mountains—Mount Baker and the Sisters and Shuksan, the Canadian Coastal Range and the Olympics on the peninsula—are surely the edge of the known and comprehended world. Holy the Firm, she asks if that is the primary substance beneath all other substances, a holy foundation stone, which supports all the metals and minerals that fill us during our earthly existence, which underlies the salts, which as newborns we are connected with, which underlies the elements in God's tooth. Julie Norwich, seven years old, a neighbor's child, she who likes to play with Small and is learning to whistle, gets her face burnt off by the ignited plane fuel.

Or live dead to the world, never learning how to whistle, or kiss, and be kissed by a man who loves her, for her lips are gone. Julie Norwich is in the hospital, fate uncertain, salted with fire. I salt my breakfast eggs. Dillard expresses well the deep emotion of such an experience, and puts words to the questions about God and suffering that all of us ask from time to time. Then she says to herself, "Oh my God there is more! Day One, November 18, "Newborn and Salted.

But the sun rose over the snowfields and woke me where I lay, and I rose and cast a shadow over someplace, and thought, There is, God help us, more. And the universe is real and not a dream, not a manufacture of the senses; subject may know object, knowledge may proceed, and Holy the Firm, is in short the philosopher's stone. The question is, then, whether God touches anything. Once again, Dillard's use of language is spectacular.
