The poems are set in India, his country of inspiration, which beguiled him in 1989 to adopt the Sikh way of life. The title poem is a witty study of the lizard that can adapt its colours to any circumstance.Mooney-Singh speaks from his perspective as a Westerner who now sports a beard, turban and Indian dress, and by doing so merges with the landscape of Indian society.

He witnesses an ancient world turning modern as a resident, not merely as a traveller or tourist. These are poems of sharp visual detail and comic irony. There are sparkling character portaits, such as that of Mrs Pritima Devi.

He has a story-tellers eye and a lyricists sense of music
