Chekhov's characters don't have thoughts of physical violence against their own parents, and the parents aren't so "toxic." This is more like something out of Dostoyevski (who was, in fact, very much influenced by Turgenev). The Brothers Karamazov, maybe, if all four of Fyodor Pavlovich's sons were combined into one character. :shuffle:

Yeah, actually, I was thinking of Papa K, too. But Tinami and her people are more Tolstoy than Dostoevsky, so I split the difference and went with Chekhov.
