Like A Song


A new essay collection from Outpost19. And it’s one of O Magazine‘s (April 2015) “Ten Titles to Pick Up Now.”

“Michelle Herman’s newest collection of essays invites you in for coffee, cake and a little karaoke….Convivial, honest and inquisitive, “Like a Song” prompts us to reflect on the meaning of our personal soundtracks.” – Columbus Alive

“A collection of six quietly transgressive pieces about music that ultimately asks, Why speak when you can sing?” – O

“Michelle Herman’s personal essays circle and swerve around their themes, weaving through time to create multi-dimensional sketches of a life coming into its current focus…observed with quiet humor, grace and an attention to detail.” – Columbus Dispatch

“Reading Michelle Herman’s essays is like sitting down with a friend over coffee and discussing life, love, TV, and parenting. She’s conversational and intimate….Like a Song is a delightful and intriguing collection….” – Heavy Feather Review

“For Herman, sharing and creating music moves all humans together, sometimes even harmoniously together, and the essays in Like A Song shed light on this intimacy that music inspires….[She] proposes that what music offers is another way of being in the world, and particularly of being with another human being.”  – Literary Mama
