The Flower Shop: Charm, Grace, Beauty & Tenderness in a Commercial Context
If beauty is defined as a quality encompassing both extraordinary sensoriality and exemplary human behavior, then possibly the most beautiful flower shop in the world is located in Vienna’s low-key but hip 4th District. Blumenkraft (literally, “Flower Power”) is a place of inspiration, refuge, and virtue that will inform and enlighten anyone involved in design and modern commerce. Mixing analysis, anecdote, and observation, Leonard Koren once again reveals the key principles of practical wisdom at work in the world. His concise and lucid text is illustrated by his own photographs.
Trained as an artist and architect, Leonard Koren is author of Arranging Things and the best-selling Wabi-Sabi. He lives in San Francisco.
WALTER MATTHAU, who has died aged 79, was one of the funniest American film actors of his generation, with a special talent for playing irascible grouches and unrepentant slobs. The more savagely he played such roles, the more irresistible he became, for no one matched him in ruthless and witty egoism. Too often, though, Matthau's wise-guys would turn out to be suckers, and his cads were condemned to revealing their hearts of gold. Matthau established his talent for misanthropy on Broadway in 1965, when he played Oscar Madison in Neil Simon's The Odd Couple. In the years that followed he won a brilliant reputation on screen in variations of the same role - and especially in the film version of that play, which appeared in 1968. Oscar, a shambolic sportswriter, is one of two divorcees who are sharing a flat. The other is the fastidious, house-proud photographer Felix Unger, played on screen by Jack Lemmon. The two men are quite unable to get on. "Everything you do irritates me," Oscar complains to Felix. "And when you're not here, the things I know you're going to do irritate me." In between the theatrical and cinematic versions of The Odd Couple, Matthau had been cast by Billy Wilder as Whiplash Willy, a fast-talking, unscrupulous lawyer who forces his only mildly injured client (Jack Lemmon) to sue for a million dollars in The Fortune Cookie (1966). Matthau's performance won him an Oscar as Best Supporting Actor. Established as a box office draw, Matthau discovered to his surprise that producers were prepared to give him roles in which, as he put it, "I was connected to the female romantically". In The Secret Life of The American Wife (1968), he plays an ageing Hollywood star too riddled with booze and self-pity to maintain his image as a sex symbol. In Cactus Flower (1969), he is a philandering dentist who employs his starchy secretary (Ingrid Bergman) to pose as a wife in order to deceive his mistress (Goldie Hawn), and proceeds to fall in love with her. One of Matthau's best films of this period was A New Leaf (1970), in which he plays an ageing, impoverished playboy who pursues a rich spinster botanist (Elaine May) with intent both matrimonial and murderous. He was sharp and funny, too, when starring with Jack Lemmon again the 1974 remake of The Front Page - even if his cynical fast-talking journalist Walter Burns was hardly a match for Cary Grant's interpretation of the same part in His Girl Friday. Still, these films showed that, with a good script, Matthau could justify Lauren Bacall's description of him as "one of the best actors anywhere". Neil Simon went further, calling him "the greatest instinctive actor" he had ever seen. Matthau was born Walter Matuschanskayasky in New York City on October 1 1920 - though he was not offended when Who's Who In The Theatre insisted the date was 1925. His father was a Russian-Jewish immigrant from Kiev; he left home when Walter was three and died in 1935. Walter was brought up in a succession of derelict flats in New York's Lower East Side, and spent most of his days at the Daughters of Israel day nursery, while his mother worked in sweat shops. At Seward Park High School, however, he evinced both sporting prowess and a love of Shakespeare. He played Polonius in Hamlet with a local drama group. Aged 11, he began to work in the evenings selling ice creams in the Yiddish theatres along Second Avenue, taking care to study the actors. Eventually, he was offered small parts. After leaving school in 1939, he worked as a floor scrubber, filing clerk, cement hauler and baseball and boxing coach. Refused admission to the New York Amateur Dramatic Group, he enlisted in the Army Air Force in 1942. He served as a radio operator and gunner in England, France and Germany before being discharged, with six battle stars, in 1945. Taking advantage of the G I Bill of Rights, Matthau returned to New York to study at the New School for Social Research Dramatic Workshop under the renowned German director Erwin Piscator, from whom he acquired "the real feeling for acting". But he still lacked confidence: "I wasn't handsome. I didn't have good clothes. I used to wonder why people would hire me when they could get college graduates and Oxford scholars." Only when Piscator commended his performance as the Judge in Volpone did he begin to believe he might make it. Matthau first appeared on Broadway in 1948, as the aged English bishop in Maxwell Anderson's Anne of The Thousand Days, starring Rex Harrison. But he had to wait until 1951 for his "first really good role", the detective Sam Dundee in Twilight Walk. Thereafter, he was continually in demand on Broadway. In 1955 was Nathan Detroit in a revival of Guys and Dolls, and the playwright Michael Freeman in Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? Even when the plays he appeared in were failures, he himself invariably received good reviews. He was also i
