Stephanie Radok is based in Adelaide, South Australia.
Her non-fiction book An Opening: Twelve Love Stories about Art was published in 2012 and long listed for the inaugural Stella Prize. It is a memoir in which art, especially Aboriginal art, vividly weaves through a life. Her new book Becoming a Bird: Untold Stories about Art appeared in 2021. It is about museums and memory, home and travel, singing and nest-making. It was selected by Nicholas Jose as his 2021 Book of The Year in the Australian Book Review and by Michelle De Kretser as her 2021 Non-Fiction Book of the Year in the Sydney Morning Herald.
