Roman à la troisième personne. Explique froidement la vie de personnages pour qui seules les choses matérielles seraient signe de bonheur. Jeunes bourgeois, ils sont plein de rêves mais n'ont pas la motivation nécessaire pour s'en donner les moyens. 2 partie: 1- Paris 2- Sfax (Tunisie) ( )

Il y a, je pense, entre les choses du monde moderne et le bonheur un rapport obligé. Une certaine richesse de notre civilisation rend un type de bonheur possible : on peut parler, en ce sens, comme d'un bonheur d'Orly, des moquettes profondes, d'une figure actuelle du bonheur qui fait, je crois, que pour être heureux, il faut être absolument moderne. Ceux qui se sont imaginé que je condamnais la société de consommation n'ont vraiment rien compris à mon livre. Mais ce bonheur demeure un possible ; car, dans notre société capitaliste, C'est : choses promises ne sont pas dues.
