Dance to the Anticlinal Fold is a spoken-word walking tour about history, geology and deep time centred on the Anticlinal Fold (pictured, above), an idiosyncratic and locally celebrated geological formation in downtown Castlemaine.
The Third Fruit is a Bird is my third collection of poetry. Gem from Grace Notes once said “Adam Ford’s The Third Fruit Is A Bird is a charming little work.” and “Ford is writing the light hearted ditties that I’d love to be able to write.”
Not Quite the Man for the Job was my second poetry collection, published by the lovely folk at Allen & Unwin in 1998. It’s 96 pages long, full of poems about space-whales, superheroes, bicycles, frisbees, talking grapes, fucked-up goldfish and concrete fairies. It also has its own subject index.
Man Bites Dog was published in 2003 by the lovely people at Allen & Unwin. It’s a novel about postal delivery, zines, poetry readings, crap television, failed romance and the problems that can be caused by a big bad dog.
