Dunlop met the writer and activist Julio Cortazar in Canada in 1977 and married him in 1981. She accompanied Cortazar on trips to a number of destinations, and sometimes traveled without him. Among the places she visited in the course of her political activism were Nicaragua and Poland; in the latter country she participated in a congress of solidarity with Chile. She died two years before Cortazar and is buried with him in the Cimetiere de Montparnasse.

Cause of death

In her book Julio Cortazar, the Uruguayan writer Cristina Peri Rossi, who was a friend of Cortazar and Dunlop, stated that both died of AIDS. Peri Rossi maintained that Dunlop had sexually contracted AIDS from Cortazar, who had himself contracted the illness from a blood transfusion he received a few years earlier in the south of France. According to Cortazar biographer Miguel Herraez, however, Dunlop died of "bone marrow failure" ("aplasia medular") and Cortazar of leukemia.
