Review from Variety  (March 1, 2020):

“The trigger warning big enough to cover the plot details, let alone
the themes here, has not yet been invented (such a trigger would
have to be more in the order of the firing pin on a mortar, or maybe
the detonation code to a suitcase nuke), so proceed with caution. . . .”

Freeman Dyson on his staircase at Trinity College
(University of Cambridge) and on Ludwig Wittgenstein:

“I held him in the highest respect and was delighted
to find him living in a room above mine on the same
staircase. I frequently met him walking up or down
the stairs, but I was too shy to start a conversation.”

Frank Close on Ron Shaw:

“Shaw arrived there in 1949 and moved into room K9,
overlooking Jesus Lane. There is nothing particularly
special about this room other than the coincidence that
its previous occupant was Freeman Dyson.”
