About the Author

Dougie MacKenzie was born in Washington, D.C. He grew up in Middleburg, Virginia and was educated at Georgetown University and the Sorbonne. An award-winning playwright, MacKenzie was Pasatiempo Magazine's 1988 Santa Fe Signature Artist for Writing. His work includes: The Water Gators In Hell (1977), a “beast” epic poem that takes its cues from Lord Byron's "A Vision Of Judgment,” and two plays, "The Splendid Wren,” which opened at The Santa Fe Playhouse in 1996, and the acclaimed "Baby Rugby,” which had its debut at The Armory For The Arts Theatre in Santa Fe, in 1998. The play that year received plaudits from theater critic Craig Smith in The New Mexican. MacKenzie lives currently in Purcellville, Virginia. He began writing his memoir, Mango Lassie while still a resident of Santa Fe. "What I miss most about Santa Fe are the sunsets, the green chile and the good vibes," he says. “Santa Fe is the elephant graveyard for Sixties freaks. Flower Power is thriving in New Mexico. So is the art world. If you can't find inspiration in the Land Of Enchantment, you'd better hang it up." “I lived the writer's life also in Paris, Rome, and London, and they can't touch Santa Fe. I owe my inspiration to twenty-three years of Santa Fe mornings."

Times spin like a whirling dervish in Douglas MacKenzie's "Mango Lassie" – a personal memoir, set during one of the most socially contentious time period's of U.S. history.  MacKenzie finds wit in just about all of it, which is amazing considering his rather active participation in what is–even by today's standards–considered to be wild 1960s debauchery.

Wall to Wall funny. Dougie MacKenzie is a first rate yarn spinner. Mango Lassie fills the bill with its vivid portrayal of college rakes and maidens overwrought.
