Journalist Bill Shipp described Doug's writing by saying: "Doug Monroe has done more than write about the South. He lives the South. He understands this eccentric, bi-polar, guilt-ridden region and its crazy people better than anyone. He also knows how to bring it to life for the reader who knows nothing about 'Southern' as well for the guy who grew up in Dixie and knows it only too well."
