« François pensa : si elle commande un déca, je me lève et je m'en vais. C'est la boisson la moinsconviviale qui soit. Un thé, ce n'est guère mieux. On sent qu'on va passer des dimanches après-midià regarder la télévision. Ou pire : chez les beaux-parents. Finalement, il se dit qu'un jus, ça serait bien. Oui, un jus, c'est sympathique. C'est convivial et pas trop agressif. On sent la fille douce et équilibrée. Mais quel jus ? Mieux vaut esquiver les grands classiques : évitons la pomme ou l'orange, trop vu. Il faut être un tout petit peu original, sans être toutefois excentrique. La papayeou la goyave, ça fait peur. Le jus d'abricot, c'est parfait. Si elle choisit ça, je l'épouse... - Je vais prendre un jus... Un jus d'abricot, je crois, répondit Nathalie. Il la regarda comme si elle était une effraction de la réalité ». La délicatesse a obtenu neuf prix littéraires et été traduit dans plus de quinze langues.
