Meredith Quartermains Lullabies in the Real World is a sequence of poems about a train journey from West to East coast that invokes a patchwork of regions, voices and histories.

This collection reflects and refracts Canada from diverse angles, and challenges colonizing literatures and various canonical British and US voices.

As it moves from west to east, the book journeys back in time to interrogate historical events and ends by imagining a time before or outside colonization.

Full of evocative train rhythms, Lullabies in the Real World widens the poetic lens to investigate the place of a colonial nation in history, and the place of a poet vis--vis the voices of other poets.
