    English Summary/英文概要: The short story form is unambiguously un-dead in this new album of thirty fictions from writer Tim Conley, coming at the reader in a variety of shapes and guises running the gamut from elliptical micro-fictions to tales of the inexplicable. Steeped in Beckett, Borges and Nabokov, Conley’s multiple universes allow for werewolves that excite ridicule not fear, and where birthdays are an occasion for forgetting not remembering. Here, the world greets a new colouring book with the same seriousness as it might some newly discovered gospel, and struggles to embrace fictional celebrities with the same ardour it reserves for real ones. And why not a variant of origami that is used on the human form?

    Chinese Summary/中文概要: 短篇小说的形式在这本作家蒂姆•康利的30部小说组成的新专辑中无疑没有消亡,呈现在读者面前的是各种各样的形式和伪装,从晦涩难懂的微型小说到无法解释的故事,无所不包。沉浸在贝克特、博尔赫斯和纳博科夫的作品中,康利的多重宇宙允许狼人激起嘲笑而不是恐惧,生日是忘记而不是记住的场合。在这里,整个世界都在迎接一本新的涂色书,它的严肃程度就像一些新发现的福音一样,并努力以对待真实人物的热情来接纳虚构的名人。为什么不用一种人类形态的折纸变体呢?(WYL)

    Awards/获奖情况:“世界上最权威的狼人专家正在买一套新西装。这句话,无疑是近来在加拿大小说中发现的最离奇的语言夸张之一,开头是一篇题为《对映异义症或类似的东西》的短篇小说。所以读者接近蒂姆•康利的作品《可折叠的》时,在第一页就注意到了;这不是一本普通的短篇小说集……

    “这是一本来自温哥华新星图书公司的引人入胜且极具挑战性的新书,康利的手工故事就像一个精美的拼图盒,有着令人困惑的美丽,故事间接地暗示了他们的主题和情节,而不是直白地陈述了他们的主题和情节。这是一本永远不会列出“容易阅读的最爱”清单的书,但尽管读者有时需要付出艰苦的努力,这些故事有时还是值得费力阅读的。尽管有超现实主义和后现代主义的元素,这些都是令人愉快的,令人不安的,有时尖叫有趣的故事。”——《温哥华太阳报》

    “The world’s foremost authority on werewolves is buying a new suit.” This line, certainly one of the weirder verbal fanfares to be found in Canadian fiction recently, opens a short story entitled “Enantiodromia or Something Like It.” So the reader approaching Tim Conley’s collection Collapsible is on notice from the first page; this is not going to be an ordinary short story volume…

    In this engaging and challenging new volume from Vancouver’s New Star Books, Conley crafts stories with all the baffling beauty of an elaborately enamelled puzzle box, narratives that obliquely hint and suggest rather than baldly state their themes and plots. This is a book that will never make a list of “easy reading favourites” but despite the sometimes-strenuous effort required from the reader, these stories are well worth the heavy lifting sometimes required. Despite the surreal and postmodernist elements, these are delightful, disturbing and sometimes screamingly funny tales.- Vancouver Sun
