Tom Malmquist


Tom and Karin are expecting their first child when Karin suddenly falls ill and must be hospitalized. The baby is taken out by caesarean section and like in a nightmare Tom runs through the empty culverts under the hospital, between the intensive care and the neonatal; between life and death. When he returns home, it is without Karin, alone with an infant and a traumatic grief. Every Moment We Are Still Alive is a raw and beautiful book about a year that changed everything.
