"Art of War is haunting, lyrical, and instructional.  These poems provide the sights, sounds and the (non)sense of war alongside unflinching human truths...The poems are omens and invocations, drawing our attention to war's grim reality through vivid hot kerosene detail and sonic trance.   Melisa Cahnmann-Taylor

"Is it possible for a lyric poet to bring the rawest complications of the adult heart, an orchestra-conductor's authority of syntax, a pristinely liberating imagination, and a virtual mixtape's range of voices, reference, and places together into a single, unified, seemingly narrative, utterly dazzling whole? Julie E. Bloemeke's Slide to Unlock confirms: it is." - Jane Hirshfield

"Julie E. Bloemeke's Slide to Unlock is a kind of philosophical love poetry, and in it, the poet locates in the body the satisfactions of the mind: 'There is no place but here, / submerged, the flower of me, / the flower of you, both coded to open, / but brought instead to salt, / converted to everlasting.' Lines like these spiral and unwind in Bloemeke's opus. This is a lovely book." - Jericho Brown, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry
