Born in Inchinnan, Renfrewshire, Dunn's first collection of poetry, Terry Street, was published in 1969, and was awarded both a Scottish Arts Council Book Award and a Somerset Maugham Award. His best known book Elegies, is a series of poems written in memory of his wife and for which he won the 1985 Whitbread Prize.
