Rating
A prize-winning, bestselling debut of love, loss, and family--based on a true story--that's winning readers around the world. When Tom's heavily pregnant girlfriend Karin is rushed to the hospital, doctors are able to save the baby. But they are helpless to save Karin from what turns out to be acute Leukemia. And in a cruel, fleeting moment Tom gains a daughter but loses his soul-mate. In Every Moment We Are Alive is the story of the year that changes everything, as Tom must reconcile the fury and pain of loss with the overwhelming responsibility of raising his daughter, Livia, alone. By turns tragic and redemptive, meditative and breathless, achingly poignant and darkly funny, this autobiographical novel has been described as 'hypnotic', 'impossible to resist' and 'one of the most powerful books about grief ever written'.

Reviews

..". such a rush of emotion is a testament to Malmquist's extraordinary skill. ... 'In Every Moment We Are Still Alive' is a tremendous feat of emotional and artistic discipline. ... a triumph"--New York Times Book Review "Beautiful... arresting ... A deeply personal account ... As more books are published, we increasingly seek out those writers who promise to give us something more than mere fiction. We want books made out of lives... The value of Malmquist's book is precisely that it retains a trace of true human presence -- carefully preserved by the author." --THE GUARDIAN Most Anticipated Book of 2018 -- THE MILLIONS "[A] heady debut novel... moving...(a) beautiful, raw meditation on earth-shattering personal loss." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY "It is bound to invite comparison to Karl Ove Knausgaard's My Struggle... Perhaps more so than Knausgaard, Malmquist demonstrates over lengthy passages that he can relay life in an intense, heightened state. The result is exhilarating." --FINANCIAL TIMES "Kafkaesque... remarkably credible." --BOOKLIST "By turns raw, unsettled, and touching, Malmquist's book is an extended meditation on what it means to love and to mourn. A deeply emotional and affecting novel." --KIRKUS REVIEWS "A unique form... infused with deep urgency. A great stylist, Malmquist's immersive prose perfectly limns the demands of living within the chiaroscuro of deep grief."--Forword Reviews
