Would it be wrong to write, for example:
"Slight Rebellion Off Madison" 's characters, plot, and themes develop in the same way as chapter 17 of Catcher in the Rye, only its point of view is different.
(Not wanting to say Salinger's characters for reasons of repetition from previous sentences.)
Some critics have written that "The Lottery"'s bleak mood evokes a tension comparable to that moment in John 8:7 when a group of scribes and Pharisees gathered to stone a woman found guilty of adultery.
And how would one handle the spacing between " and 's ?
[[these are just an examples, mind you]]
