Character Descriptions:

Catherine: A young woman who inherited at least some of her father’s mathematical genius, and, she fears, his “instability” as well; she gave up her life and schooling to take care of her father until his recent death.

Claire: Catherine’s older sister, a no nonsense, take charge kind of gal who left Robert and Catherine behind in the run down family home on the edge of the University of Chicago campus where Robert taught to make a life for herself in New York City.

Robert: A recently deceased mathematician who did brilliant, breakthrough work in his youth, but whose later years were plagued by delusional mental illness; he is seen in Catherine’s imagination and in flashbacks.

Harold (Hal) Dobbs: One of Robert’s last Ph.D. students during the one year his idol and mentor’s illness went into remission, at least enabling Robert to teach, if not continue his own creative mathematical work.
