"A prismatic exloration of the complexities and contradictions of close relationships....A sharp eye, brave intellect, and satisfying writing make this worth a look even for those who don't usually read essays." --Kirkus (starred review)

"From her explanations of the brain's activity as we fall head over heels for someone, to a breakdown of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, Morano makes clear that even though we are all complicit in love and its ensuing chaos, our only obligation is to experience it."--Destiny O. Birdsong, Bookpage

"Haunting....Every piece reads like a conversation between close friends, sharing their greatest moments of vulnerability and their brightest memories of softness.... Reading this book is a reprieve from any strife, and transports audiences back to the first time they felt the dopamine rush of admiration. Morano's work is proof that a life spent in love is monumental, worth entire books, worth everything." --Courtney Eathorne, Booklist

"If you have ever loved and lost, and if you can smile, wince, cry, laugh--all at the same time--you're ready for Michele Morano's brilliant new book about the perplexing forms and evolving definitions of love. And you're in luck: Michele Morano is a superb writer. Like Love is an essential book for us all." --Abigail Thomas
"Like Love is an intimate memoir of the sometimes shifting, sometimes blending borders of infatuation, disenchantment, friendship, and love. Throughout her personal journeys, the always wise and empathetic Morano teaches us how to see--ourselves as well as others." --Philip Graham
"Michele Morano's essays are funny, insightful, and just gorgeous, but I'm most impressed by her exquisite generosity. She keeps looking, daring herself to ask increasingly gutsier questions. I can't remember when I last read a book as openhearted as Like Love." --Ryan Van Meter, author of If You Knew Then What I Know Now
