      Anita Diamant was an author lucky enough to have her first novel transformed into a miniseries. Diamant was best known for writing about and involving herself with contemporary Jewish practice, particularly in the intersection of Judaism and women. Diamant grew up in New Jersey before moving to Colorado. She attended Washington University in St. Louis where she earned her degree in comparative literature. She then received her master's in English from Binghamton University in 1975. She began her career as a journalist, writing about parenting and Jewish issues among other subjects for a variety of publications. In 1985, she published her first book, called The New Jewish Wedding, and continued to publish books on contemporary Jewish practices. The Red Tent was her first fiction book, a retelling of a biblical story that gives a voice to the silent rape victim Dinah. The book was a huge success, and she followed it up with more books centered around women and religion, such as Good Harbor, The Last Days of Dogtown, and Day After Night. In December 2014, she published The Boston Girl, about immigrant women at the turn of the 20th century. Lifetime presented "The Red Tent" as an acclaimed miniseries in 2014, starring Rebecca Ferguson as Dinah.
