      4.5 stars. The intensity begins on the first page and continues with the fear and uncertainty over what was happening in this critical emergency situation. Tom's pregnant partner, Karin is extremely ill and is shortly diagnosed with acute leukemia. Anyone who’s ever been through such a time in the emergency setting knows the difficulty of handling their visceral reactions while trying to understand and absorb the details of what the doctor are telling you. Tom Malmquist depicts this perfectly [...]

      4.5 Stars”THE CONSULTANT STAMPS down the wheel lock of Karin’s hospital bed. In a loud voice he addresses the intensive care nurses, who are cutting open her tank top and sports bra: Pregnant woman, week thirty-three, child reportedly in good health, started feeling ill about five days ago with flu-like symptoms, fever, cough, slight shortness of breath yesterday which was put down to her pregnancy, condition severely deteriorating today, acute respiratory difficulties, arrived at the matern [...]

      (4.5) In this highly autobiographical novel from a Swedish poet, Tom has to face the sudden loss of his partner and his father in quick succession while also adjusting to single parenthood. Originally published in 2015, this is Malmquist’s first work of prose. While it’s being marketed as a novel, it reads more like a stylized memoir. Similar to Karl Ove Knausgaard’s books, it features the author as the central character and narrator. With its frank look at medical crises, this is a book I [...]

      2 stars. I simply couldn't connect with this book.I have much respect for the author, Tom Malmquist, for writing this fictionalized autobiography. I feel that writing his story would have been therapeutic and life changing for him to have documented everything he went through and experienced. Unfortunately, as a reader, I couldn't immerse myself within the story. The writing lacked emotion for me - it was more "tell" than "feel". The story was 'matter of factly' told in an almost clinical way. I [...]

She didn’t have time to prise them out and throw them away as she usually did. The brush is thick with hair, I smell it, I press it to my mouth.”In Every Moment We Are Still Alive is full of beautiful, poignant passages. Tom [...]

      I receved this book as an ARC from Gyldendal. It's not exactly something I would normally read, but I don't have any regrets. I wasn't aware that it was non-ficiton until I started reading it.The book starts very abruptly with Karin, Tom's wife, being admitted to hospital. She is pregnant and they are worried about their unborn child. Karin's situaton deteriorates very quickly. A healthy baby girl is delivered by ceasarian. Within days Tom is left alone to care for a premature baby, Karin dies. [...]

    • Kusaimamekirai says:

      Wow.“In Every Moment We are Still Alive” is a book that will put you through the emotional wringer. Part memoir, part fiction, it tells the story of Tom Malmquist who suffers more pain in a short period of time than any human being should have to endure. At the beginning of the story his pregnant partner is admitted to the hospital with what they believe is the flu, which they then think is pneumonia, until finally they realize is a rapidly advancing and fatal leukaemia.The hours in the hosp [...]

    • Deb says:

      I was interested in reviewing In Every Moment We Are Alive after reading the blurb and seeing all the accolades the book was getting. It's based on the real life and experiences of the author, Tom Malmquist when his long-time girlfriend Karin, is rushed to the hospital with breathing issues. What should be a happy time for the couple, Karin is pregnant with their daughter, soon becomes tragic as Karin's health rapidly deteriorates and she is diagnosed with acute leukemia. Doctors are able to sav [...]

    • Mai Laakso says:

      Ruotsalaisen runoilijan Tom Malmquistin ensimmäinen romaani perustuu tositapahtumiin. Joka hetki olemme yhä elossa kertoo Tomista ja Karinista, jotka odottavat esikoislastaan, mutta sitten Karin joutuu sairaalaan. Hän on vakavasti sairas, kuolemansairas.Joka hetki olemme yhä elossa on kirjoitettu kiihkeydellä ja tarkkuudella. Kaikki Karinin sairauteen liittyvät asiat on kirjoitettu kuin kirurgin veitsellä, mikään ei saa lipsua, käden on oltava vakaa. Aivan kuin Karin olisi yhtä sairaa [...]

    • Marie Eriksson says:

      Livet och döden. Fragment av liv. Otrolig närvaro i berättelsen. Karin och Tom blev tyvärr aldrig "ett slags lycklig version av Sylvia Plath och Ted Hughes".

    • Sue says:

      This is an intense fictionalized autobiographical novel that will pull you in from page 1. At times it reads like a hospital drama but with added feeling and humanity. The book provides a gamut of emotions - at times the main character is confused, grief stricken, selfish and full of love. It is written in a style that takes a bit of getting used to - the author is a poet and it is apparent in his use of language but he moves back and forth from past to present often and the reader needs to real [...]

    • Matilda says:

      Jag var till en början skeptisk, stod och höll i boken under bokrean men köpte den aldrig för att jag tyckte den lät lite trist, lite för sorglig. Sedan såg jag den i bokhyllan i Västerås hos Kaspers mamma och lånade med den hem. Kunde inte låta bli. Och tänk, det gjorde jag bra. Tom Malmquist skriver på ett sätt som jag önskar att jag själv kunde skriva på - osentimentalt och floskelfritt men ändå så fullt av känsla, så nära. Det hela inleds hastigt med att Tom och Karin [...]

    • Kirsty says:

      Swedish poet Tom Malmquist's memoir, In Every Moment We Are Still Alive, sounded incredibly touching. It deals with the death of his wife, Karin, after being diagnosed with acute leukaemia. His daughter, Livia, is delivered prematurely, and Malmquist has to deal with her birth at the same time as his wife's death.I found In Every Moment We Are Still Alive rather difficult to read. It jumps around rather a bit, and it is difficult at times to work out who the secondary characters are; there is ra [...]

    • Marie Engfors says:

      Läste e-boken och den måste ha varit ett måndagsexemplar. Formateringen var jätteskum och gjorde det svårt att läsa. Långa textsjok utan styckeindelningar blandades med halvtomma sidor. Toms berättelse är trist. Jag hade föredragit den i formen av en bombastisk bästsäljarroman istället för det här känslokalla, realistiska, flow of conciousness-stuket. Detaljerna är för många, känslorna ligger under texten och ger mest ångest, hos läsaren och förmodligen även hos författa [...]

    • Annika Kronberg says:

      (3,5)100 första sidorna - fantastiska, sorgliga, trovärdiga, berörde mig så mycket. 20 sista sidorna - så välskrivna och poetiska men ändå tydliga. Sidorna däremellan är ibland lite långsamma och lite svåra att få grepp om. Det är ett myller av sorg vilket även i verkligheten är svårt att greppa, så det kan ju vara något avsiktligt. Det är väldigt många namn som droppas vilket kan kännas lite rörigt. Dialogen är skriven utan citationstecken eller talstreck, och den blir [...]

    • Felicia says:

      En helt okej bok. Tyckte definitivt inte att den var dålig, men jag kan nog inte heller påstå att jag tyckte om den. Mörk, tung och ganska långsam.

      *Giveaway for one copy of this book, US only, ends 2/20/18 on my Instagram: @Katyslibrary*Thank you so much TLC Book Tours and Melville House for sending me a copy of this book for review and having me on this book tour!Tom Malmquist writes a heartbreaking fictional story based on what he experienced in his own personal life. The grief he deals with is profound and what he has to go through in the wake of that grief is almost unbearable. A touching story with insights into the Swedish culture, t [...]

    • Julie Mestdagh says:

      "I varje ögonblick är vi fortfarande vid liv" is de eerste roman van Tom Malmquist, die eerder, in 2007 een dichtbundel "Sudden death" uitbracht, waarin hij zijn indrukken neerpende van zijn carrière als hockeyspeler. Het is niet zomaar een roman, maar een rauwe, eerlijke weergave van wat de verschrikkelijkste periode uit zijn leven moet zijn geweest: in de achtste maand van haar zwangerschap blijkt zijn vriendin Karin plots aan acute leukemie te lijden. Dochtertje Livia komt anderhalve maand [...]

    • Annette says:

      In Every Moment we are still Alive by Tom Malmquist was a good reads winI liked the cover of the book. At first glance it was plain white, but when tilted the title of the book was visible in shiny white. The spine had a pattern of pink flowers. I thought it put over the idea of transience, things being there but not there.Tom is having to face the unexpected death of his partner as well as the decline and death of his father. He has to cope with being sole carer of his premature new born daught [...]

    • Jasmine says:

      The review on the back of the book says that “there is so much humanity in this book” and I can give no truer description. I don’t want to talk about the plot, but just how the book was written (and thus, I must give props to the translator - good job!). There is so much feeling, all this emotion in relatively few pages. It’s a very visual and evocative book, one that will stay with me for a long time, that I think captures humanity and emotion in a way that I’ve not read before. It’ [...]

    • Daria Mielcarz says:

      I get that this book is based on a person's very sad life experience but the title belies the content. There is nothing life affirming or uplifting in this book. It is dreary and depressing from cover to cover.

    • sofia says:

      När han sommarpratade 2016 visade jag det för alla och grät varje gång. Gråter också ibland när jag läser boken. Det finns en närvaro i den, en verklighet som stressar för att den känns så sann. Den är lika stark och skör och ärlig som livet.

    • Tim says:

      Interesting story, but poorly written prose. There is hardly punctuation, so it's hard to follow who is saying what.

    • Sara says:

      Slutet var extremt starkt. Grät som ett litet barn.

    • Amber says:

      Thanks to Melville House for providing me with a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. I’d heard a lot of rave reviews before diving into this book, so I was both nervous and excited. Nervous because sometimes the hype can be too much and I end up underwhelmed by the book, but excited because I was really intrigued by the synopsis. It turned out to be a gem, albeit a heartbreaking gem.The book starts in the hospital. It jumps right into the chaos and confusion of not knowing [...]

    • Mark says:

      Tom Malmquist's wife was rushed to the hospital, pregnant with their first child. Within days Karin is dead from acute leukemia and Tom was left to care for their newborn daughter. At times he feels as if he is too tired to go on and should be committed to save those around him from being scorched by his own pain and suffering. Amazing, heartbreaking and complicated, much like life itself, this fictionalized memoir is not an easy read and why would it be? It's full of raw truths that will put yo [...]

    • Kata Melander says:

      Järisyttävä ja vavahduttava tarina syvästä toivottomuudesta, josta alkaa hiljalleen kuoriutua toivoa. Hieno, viiden tähden romaani.

    • Alicia says:

      2.5 ish. Started off with gripping intensity but ultimately left me a bit cold. Fragmented, jumpy and distant writing style and it was hard to connect with the narrator, for me at least. And it was difficult to get a full sense of all the relationships at play.

    • Lolly K Dandeneau says:

      via my blog: bookstalkerblog.wordpress/'Livia touches my mouth and nose with hands that remind me of Karin’s testing a piece of fruit for ripeness.'Such a simple line and so painfully brutal knowing the future Tom and Karin envisioned is gone, that Tom is left to raise their infant daughter, Livia in the wake of his beloved’s death. The love of his life taken by leukemia (though taken sounds so mild compared to dead), and the begining of a beautiful love with his child. It’s a tug of war b [...]
