The Museum of Broken Relationships

Olinka Vištica and Dražen Grubišic

ISBN 9781474605502

What to do with the fragments of a love affair?

A postcard from a childhood sweetheart. A wedding dress in a jar. Barbed wire. Silicone breast implants. Red stilettos, never worn. These objects, and many others, make up the inspiring, whimsical, sometimes bizarre, and always unforgettable population of the real life Museum of Broken Relationships.

A decade ago, as lovers Olinka and Dražen were struggling through their own painful breakup and desperate to heal their heartbreak without destroying the memory of the love they had shared, an idea struck: They would create a communal space, a kind of refuge for, and celebration of, the everyday objects that had outlasted love. These items, along with the anonymous, intimate stories each piece represented, quickly captured hearts and imaginations across the globe. As word spread, submissions poured in, and the museum became a worldwide sensation. Now the authors have collected the best, funniest, most heart-warming and thought-provoking pieces into a gorgeous book that offers an irresistible experience of human connection. The Museum of Broken Relationships is a must-read for anyone who has ever loved and lost.
