“The Girls in Their Summer Dresses” by Irwin Shaw can be found in the February 4, 1939 issue of the New Yorker. You can read it online, if you have a New Yorker subscription.
The Awakening by Kate Chopin
Though I wasn’t thinking of it at the time, this book’s description matches Moses: When Harriet Tubman Led Her People to Freedom (Hyperion Books for Children), written by Carole Boston Weatherford, illustrated by Kadir Nelson. Moses was not edited by “a Hitchcock blond in glasses” named Janine. Janine is loosely inspired by Janine O’Malley, the editor of all five of my young adult novels at Farrar Straus Giroux Books for Young Readers. I have never known her to wear glasses to a formal event.
“Show, don’t tell” and Screenplay: The Foundations of Screenwriting by Syd Field — Drunk Daniel is confusing a few things here. “Show, don’t tell” isn’t from one screenwriting book or teacher; it’s a chestnut as old as movies itself. Although the concept is evoked in some way by almost every screenwriting guide, it certainly isn’t particular to Syd Field. However, I strongly agree with Daniel’s point that this advice is misapplied when discussing novels.
“The Grasshopper and the Ant” by Aesop, from Aesop’s Fables
A good place to start if you are reading Guillaume Apollinaire for the first time is Calligrammes.
