I had lost my pet chameleon before Johnathan came home for vacation. One day
when I shuffled through the curling leaves in its box, it wasn't there. I had lost it
before, only to discover it climbing the gold-and-green drapes in the living room.

In 1964, at the age of three, Tim Bascom is thrust into a world of eucalyptus trees and stampeding baboons when his family moves from the Midwest to Ethiopia. The unflinchingly observant narrator of this memoir reveals his missionary parents’ struggles in a sometimes hostile country. Sent reluctantly to boarding school in the capital, young Tim finds that beyond the gates enclosing that peculiar, isolated world, conflict roils Ethiopian society. When secret riot drills at school are followed with an attack by rampaging students near his parents' mission station, Tim witnesses the disintegration of his family’s African idyll as Haile Selassie’s empire begins to crumble. Like Alexandra Fuller’s Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight, Chameleon Days chronicles social upheaval through the keen yet naive eyes of a child. Bascom offers readers a fascinating glimpse of missionary life, much as Barbara Kingsolver did in The Poisonwood Bible.

What happens when the narrator is removed from a story? When the author’s real life is fictionalized instead, so that creator and creation relate on the same existential ground with no middleman? Chameleon (Days) is such an experiment in storytelling, a literary novel that explores an author’s psychotic break as he prepares to write an idea he has apparently stolen, one prompted by the discovery of a secondary character in his walk-in closet. A fictional day-to-day narrative structured around the search for Kashif, a feared and hunted terrorist labeled the Chameleon for the many facial surgeries he has incurred to disguise his identity, Chameleon (Days) bridges its author’s life to the evolution of Kashif’s story creating a fiction “while life happens,” which often manifests itself in interference, inspiration, and the perils of letting your character know who his creator is.
Quickly dubbed "The Human Chameleon," he turns into an event, a scandal, a
cause, exploited by greedy relatives, loved and hated by the public, fussed over
by eager psychiatrists. Helen Kane records a chirpy song, "Chameleon Days," ...
