Description: In this winsome novel, Amos Oz returns to the Jerusalem of his youth during the waning days of the British mandate. Panther in the Basement is the story of Proffi (short for "Professor"), a twelve-year-old whose head is filled with dreams of dying heroically in battle. Together with his friends Ben-Hur and Cheetah, he spends the summer of 1947 as a member of a make-believe underground movement fighting the British. Indoctrinated by his patriotic father and his zealous Bible teacher, Proffi becomes like "an excited panther in the basement, seething with oaths and vows, knowing exactly ... to what (he) will dedicate (his) life, for what (he) will sacrifice it when the hour of truth comes".

But when his comrades accuse him of treason for his friendship with Sergeant Dunlop -- a fat, good-natured British soldier who loves the Bible and admires the Jews of yore -- Proffi must ponder the meaning of loyalty, even as he struggles to vindicate himself in the eyes of his family and friends.
