Faramerz Dabhoiwala  

Author of the Award-Winning "The Origins of Sex"

Faramerz Dabhoiwala was born in Bristol in 1969, and brought up in many places. He grew up mainly in Amsterdam and then moved back to England to be educated, at York and Oxford.

Initially, Dabhoiwala embarked on the research that led to "The Origins of Sex" out of sheer curiosity about the sexual mores of men and women in the past, and why they had changed so much and so suddenly in the eighteenth century. He thought it would be a brief project, but the more he pursued it the bigger the subject revealed itself to be. And the more amazing material Dabhoiwala uncovered in archives, libraries, and art galleries around the world, the more determined he became to do justice to what turned out to be one of the great untold stories about the origins of our modern condition.

“The Origins of Sex” has earned the honor of Book of the Year for numerous publishers, including: The Economist, The Times, The Sunday Times, The Sunday Telegraph, The Observer, The Sunday Herald, and BBC History Magazine.
