The Belly Of An Architect is the story of a distinguished American architect, Stourley Kracklite, who goes to Rome to put on an exhibition in memory of his hero, the eighteenth-century visionary French architect, Etienne-Louis Boullée. Kracklite forgets the present to honour the past. But at what cost? He ignores his wife, his child and, finally, his health. The penalty for such an obsession is the loss of his exhibition – the very thing he sacrificed all other parts of his life to achieve.
