Greene, moving where the work was, relocated to Cincinnati, and then to Cleveland; her employment required constant travel. Added to the daunting reality of failure in a city with a large immigrant population, Lovecraft's single room apartment at 169 Clinton Street in Brooklyn Heights , not far from the working class waterfront neighborhood Red Hook , was burgled, leaving him with only the clothes he was wearing. In August 1925 he wrote " The Horror at Red Hook " and " He ", in the latter of which the narrator says "My coming to New York had been a mistake; for whereas I had looked for poignant wonder and inspiration… I had found instead only a sense of horror and oppression which threatened to master, paralyze, and annihilate me". It was at around this time he wrote the outline for " The Call of Cthulhu " with its theme of the insignificance of all humanity. In the bibliographical study H. P. Lovecraft: Against the World, Against Life , Michel Houellebecq suggested that the misfortunes fed Lovecraft's central motivation as a writer, which he said was racial resentment.  With a weekly allowance Greene sent, Lovecraft moved to a working class area of Brooklyn Heights where he subsisted in a tiny apartment. He had lost 40 pounds (18 kg) of bodyweight by 1926, when he left for Providence.
