Biography/Timeline

1988

1989

1990

In the 1990s she wrote a trilogy around a British female private eye Hannah Wolfe, spotlighting issues like surrogacy, cosmetic surgery, animal rights, and violence to women. Sexual violence was also at the centre of “Transgressions” (based on a mysterious series of incidents happening in her house*2) which tackled what might happen if a woman woke to an intruder in her house and live to tell the tale. The resulting furore over the actions of the heroine “caused the book to become a cause celebre which triggered a debate about rape and popular culture.*(3)

The commercial success of these books in America and elsewhere (*5) allowed Dunant to devote herself full time to writing and research concentrating of the most current work being done in renaissance studies, most particularly concerning the lives of women. (*6) The novel Sacred Hearts, a story of nuns in an enclosed convent in 16th Ferrara led to collaboration with the early music group, Musica Secreta: a theatrical adaptation using the music of the period and with a choir, performed in churches and at early music festivals around Britain.
