Publisher Description

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 soulmate. 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.”

  • “Beautiful…Arresting…A deeply personal account.”

    - Guardian (London)
  • “Malmquist demonstrates over lengthy passages that he can relay life in an intense, heightened state. The result is exhilarating.”

    - Financial Times (London)
  • “This is narrative as raw material. In a powerful translation by the novelist Henning Koch, there are sentences of precise and subtle lyricism…The novel doesn’t feel remembered, though of course it is. That’s where its craft lies, and its triumph—in the suspension of hindsight, in an act of recollection whose hand is perpetually guiding the text, but can’t be seen.”

    - New York Times Book Review (front page review)
  • “Malmquist’s immersive prose perfectly limns the demands of living within the chiaroscuro of deep grief.”

    - Foreword Reviews (starred review)
  • “Kafkaesque…remarkably credible.”

    - Booklist
  • "[A] moving…beautiful, raw meditation on earth-shattering personal loss.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “An extended meditation on what it means to love and to mourn. A deeply emotional and affecting novel.”
