A boyfriend from years gone by, who always had an opinion about everything, gave me this ventriloquist doll for my birthday. We always gave each other odd gifts. I christened him Mario because of his Italian-style good looks (the doll, not the boyfriend). He’s a great listener, and he voices his opinon only when I want one. The boyfriend has long gone, but Mario and I are still good buddies.
Join our Heartbreak Hotel by sending the object by post, sending us a photograph or dropping off your item in person at the Griffin office. You don’t have to include your story but we would love to hear it. All objects will remain anonymous, we will look after them and will return them to you safe and sound.
Our resident artists will create a series of works inspired by your objects which will be performed on 8 June during our Festival of New Writing week.
Send or drop off your items to:
