We caught up with August Edwards, the founder of the music journal Albuquerque Green Room and the nonfiction and art editor for Fourteen Hills. She’s also a bookseller at Green Apple Books in San Francisco! She told us more about Green Apple Books and her favorite additions to the 33 1/3 series.
With summer now a hazy memory and October dragging into its 17th week, it is fitting to reflect on the moody album once described by Rolling Stone’s Arion Berger as “romantic fatalism”: Blondie’s Parallel Lines.
