Thinking about Karl Ove Knausgård

I haven't read Min Kamp. I haven't read anything by Knausgård.
But I know what he's been doing, and how controversial it is (who in Norway doesn't?).
Think about it: How far can you go? How honest can you be? How rude and brutal and ruthless can you be? 
So lately out of madness, or something of the sort, I've been doing some kind of Min Kamp writing practice (though the 1st part was more like an imitation of JA, and the 2nd part...), only to realise that whatever it was that enabled him to do what he did- courage or shamelessness, I don't have it.
