Breakthrough Author Chris Fountain adds another decimal to the Dewey Decimal System with the first autobiography in history written entirely in songs!

Literary history has been made again this week by a small town Vet from Sparr, Florida when he published his autobiography, The “Great” Britain Blues, as it is the first autobiography in history in which the story is told in a series of songs. It's also the first time that any book was written in Generation X English, of the Deep South variety.

Chris Fountain, nicknamed "Captain Redneck" in High School, joined the USAF in 1994 and was subsequently sent to Great Britain, where he spent his entire four year career. And for a small town boy from Sparr, FL, who had only left the state twice, it was very exciting… at least, in the Air Force days, getting paid in US Dollars and buying everything on base tax free in US Dollars. But after marrying a British girl he unfortunately fell in love with, living and working in England for more than 10 years as a British person does, after divorcing, only there to be a father to his kids and hating his decision to marry their mother more and more every day, while paying the Queen's rate of taxes and spending $10 per gallon on gas… Chris got the Blues! That's for sure.

And this book, his life's story, is nothing short of unimaginable. It’s laugh-out-loud funny, thought-provoking, offending in places, and 100% original! And it was written in only two short weeks while the author worked a full time job! There has never been a book in the history of mankind written in such a way, and there probably aren't any other life stories as unbelievable as this one!

Its impact on the literary world could significantly contribute to history's recollection of the early 21st century as well as Chris' unfortunate brethren, the Generation X.

The below three chorus arrangements, from Chapter 4, "The 4th of July", is a good sampling of the battle he waged as a proud Southern American living in England:

It's the fourth of July, yeah, it's the fourth of July
And my baby girl askin' me, to turn da heat up high
I tell no lie, lord, I tell no lie
It's the fourth of July, yeah summer time, and she about to cry

Didn't I say lord, it's the fourth of July
Should be eatin' dem ribs, should be a hundred and five!
Didn't I say lord, I gotz the heat up high
And we ain't wantin' no frost bite, so we stayin' inside!

Didn't I say lord, it's the fourth of July
Should be lightin' bottle rockets, should be a hundred and five
Didn't I say lord, I gotz the heat up high
Gotz to keep my baby warm, gotz to stay alive!

This book contains 49 chapters, each ending with a song written—one as mind blowing as the next one—full of twists and turns that will certainly get you on the edge of your seat, turning pages the whole way.
