This quotation occurs in Julian Barnes' novel Flaubert's Parrot:
Me and my books, in the same apartment. Like a gherkin in its vinegar.
Many of the quotations in that novel are actually Flaubert's own words, and this one has a Flaubertian ring to it, but I can't find the original in Flaubert himself. Googling "cornichon" etc. did no good.
