About Stephen Paul Register

Stephen Paul Register has a philosopher’s mind, an artist’s heart, and a writing style that beautifully reflects a lifetime of profound experiences. From his upbringing in the American South to his ivy league graduate education at Yale University, Register has travelled the world over as a student, a nomad and a soldier. Register’s voice is Hemingwayesque in its simplicity and at other times boldly overflowing like Proust.

This book is an excellent read. Stephen Register's ability to capture both beauty and tragedy mixed with the military frustrations that accompany life on a deployment captured me while I was reading. Every person who longs to understand what really goes on in the minds of our soldiers as they serve over seas should read this book. Soldiers will also enjoy "Meantime" because of the grainy realism he portrays mixed with the full range of emotion many of us have felt on a long seemingly meaningless deployment. Do not pass this book up, you will be hard pressed to find a better one in the "meantime."

MEANTIME is a great quick and easy read. I found the book to be quite thought provoking and it really is a truthful war memoir that takes you inside of the mind of a young soldier learning how to cope with the diverse circumstances. Stephen Paul Register has really seen a lot... Very interesting the way the stories shift from one short story to another. Really grabs the attention of the reader and never gets monotonous. Great debut work. Worth every penny.
