Bees Road Trilogy

The Bees Road Trilogy is the personal narrative of Rami Ollaik in three books: The Bees Road, Under The Green Waters and Lost In The Barn.

In an inspirational journey that takes the reader from war-torn South Lebanon to a detention cell at JFK airport, The Bees Road is the personal narrative of Rami Ollaik.

A Lebanese Shiite raised in an environment full of violence and cruelty, Rami joins and rises to the top echelons of Hezbollah. In 1994, and after 13 years of party involvement, he reevaluates his life and his conception of love in an attempt to rid himself of his haunting fundamentalist past and to finally pursue his ultimate goal of personal freedom. A rough path that leaves him a traitor to Hezbollah, a suspected terrorist to the United States.

Under The Green Waters is the continuation of the story laid down in The Bees Road: a story of the publication’s fallout, its blow on the author and impact on Lebanese politics, and a story of meticulous sabotage.

A literary autobiographical account of the author’s story during the year 2008 that takes us deep into the murky circles of the corrupt Lebanese State; showing the behind-the-scenes nature of democracy in the Middle East, and the intricately calibrated intimidation campaigns.

It is also a story of love, betrayal, fear, hope and devastating heartbreaks.

The third and last book of the trilogy, Lost In The Barn, is a journey through real life events that affected the author’s life between the years 2008 and 2010. A leap from Hezbollah to true patriotism, passing through identity crisis, meticulous sabotage, a hope for a long awaited justice, and ending with an encounter with the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, with a father passing away after having witnessed all the past sufferings.

The Bees Road

In an inspirational journey from war-torn South Lebanon to a detention cell at JFK airport, The Bees Road traces a man’s rough path which leaves him a traitor to the United States. A child soldier rises to the top echelons of Hezbollah before he decides, after twelve years, to rid himself of his haunting fundamentalist past and pursue his ultimate goal of personal freedom.

In the land of “The Great Satan” he attends university and falls in love with what America stands for, until the fateful events of September 11. The resulting national paranoia pushes him into confrontation with the FBI, blackmail and an unwarranted deportation from the U.S. With mixed feelings of love, betrayal, fear, hope and devastating heartbreak he moves to teaching beekeeping at the American University of Beirut, filled with the urge to rid Lebanon of bigotry and unite the nation as whole.

Under The Green Waters

A war-shocked child brought under the wing of Hezbollah. That child’s growth into a man, and his subsequent Intifadas. A traitor to Hezbollah, a suspected terrorist to the United States, a professor of beekeeping and author of The Bees Road.

Where is Rami Ollaik? Where has his unlikely path taken him? And, perhaps most importantly, who has been watching him?

Under The Green Waters is the continuation of the story laid down in The Bees Road: a story of the publication’s fallout, its blow on the author and impact on Lebanese politics, and a story of meticulous sabotage.

In the theo-political war of ideology, words carry weight and the author’s words published in The Bees Road prove to be heavy.

How did the Party of God react to his blasphemies? Who was listening to his message, and where did their allegiances finally lie.

Lost In The Barn follows the author’s autobiographic account in his BEES ROAD TRILOGY, his reaching out for a nation amidst the encompassing corruption and deterioration of the Lebanese State, extending to member states of the whole region.

Lost In The Barn makes you deep-dive into the human dichotomy of hope and disappointments, in a journey of pilgrimage that links the past experiences to the present sufferings and embarks on a father’s witnessing of that and his passing away.
