cross words

Sixteen Across Forty-one short stories by Holly Gramazio
All of the stories are set in Adelaide, and they're appearing twice a week, one every Monday and Thursday, with each story acting as a crossword clue.

I didn't know Adelaide was so rich in experiences that 2 whole stories a week could come from there. A fella once said to me 'the best thing you can do in Adelaide is go to the airport and go anywhere else'

The best thing you can do in any other Australian town is to leave it and come here.

Across in the city of churches sounds pleasantly cryptic.

Nah, just appropriately parochial and defensive, full of false self-importance and suffering a mild inferiority complex. This place may be a shithole, but it's a quiet and comfy one.

I'm here at the moment, it's good. Apart from the full extent of this ridiculous Australian "summer in December" thing.

Yes yesterday was very ridiculous in Melbourne.

Welcome to Aus, Kevan.
