Eileen: Stories from the Phillip Street Courtyard

Eileen Kramer and Tracey Spring, Melbourne Books, 2018

In this charming memoir, Eileen writes about her life before she was a dancer, living in a bohemian artist community in Phillip Street in the centre of Sydney. The book’s 33 stories are a social history of Sydney bohemia in the late 1930s, spanning five years of Eileen’s life as a young woman from 1936 to 1940 as she grows into adulthood, discovering friendships, loyalty, sensuality and art.

Walkabout Dancer

Eileen Kramer, Trafford Publishing, 2008

Eileen’s first venture into memoir includes fascinating accounts of the Bodenwieser years, her travels in India and Europe, as well as her time in New York and West Virginia. Lyrical, expressive and imaginative, this lovely book chronicles Eileen’s journey as she gathers material for her spiritual “dilly bag” of ideas and images.
