But then an autobiography is completed when the person is dead.His autobiography ends with his death.


But who would write it?

That's the point . No one can write another's autobiography.As far as I know Autobiography is a book that is written and COMPLETED by him in his own lifeteme.So I still think history is the most appropriate answer. ;)

History and one's life story (auto-biography) both have the same logical conclusion. They are happening as you write and therefore cannot be finished.

I definitely think that an autobiography is an acceptable answer, or at least a COMPLETE autobiography is. If it ends in the subject's death, the subject can never write about, and therefore never finish it.
But of course, there are several autobiographies out there that have been finished - they just end where the writer wants it to end.
I'd still go with history as being the best answer. ;)
