John Irving, THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP, Ballantine Books, New York, 1998 
Garp had other ambitions for "The Pension Grillparzer." It would never make him much money; it would first appear in a "serious" magazine where almost no one would read it. Years later, when he was better known, it would be publish in a more attentive way, and several appreciative things would be written about it. but in his lifetime "The Pension Grillparzer" wouldn't make Garp enough money to buy a good car. Garp, however, expected more than money or transportation from "The Pension Grillparzer." Very simply, he expected Helen Holm to live with him - even marry him.
