British noted family, the illegitimate son of a hot and heavy love affair between H.G. Wells and Dame Rebecca West. "Panther" was a nickname his parents used with each other; they were together for ten years before separating.

He also wrote essays and criticism for "The New Yorker" magazine for more than 20 years and was a critic for "The New Statesman" in London. In 1985 he published a novel entitled "Heritage."

He was married and had two sons and two daughters.
