"Wait 'Til You Have Real Problems, " the fiercely imaginative debut collection from Scott Beal, tackles gender and childhood, passion and loss, in a series of thematically linked poems that will leave readers breathless. Beal finds inspiration in everything from fairytale to fatherhood, from a girl with barbed-wire hair to the origin of chicken noodle soup--but always, ultimately, from the core of the human.
