Like Love was longlisted for the PEN/Diamonstein-Spielvogel Award for the Art of the Essay. Booklist calls the book, “Haunting....Every piece reads like a conversation between close friends, sharing their greatest moments of vulnerability and their brightest memories of softness.... Morano’s work is proof that a life spent in love is monumental, worth entire books, worth everything.”

Her essays and short fiction have appeared in many journals and anthologies, including Best American Essays, Fourth Genre, Ninth Letter, and Waveform: Twenty-First-Century Essays by Women.
