Book Review: The Quintessential Zerka Writings by Zerka Toeman Moreno on Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy Edited by Toni Horvatin and Edward Schreiber, 2006

Zerka Moreno, who recently celebrated her ninetieth birthday, needs no introduction to anyone with more than a cursory familiarity with psychodrama. It is timely that this book, bringing together some of her considerable writings regarding the psychodramatic method into a single volume, is finally published. Never far from the mention of Zerka is the spectre of her late husband, psychodrama’s founder, Jacob Moreno. It therefore seems fitting that the title of her book, The Quintessential Zerka, gives a playful nod to the primer of his writing by Jonathon Fox, The Essential Moreno.
