In Citizen in the Making, a Jewish-Israeli man in his twenties tells a story about a strange meeting he had with a nurse in front of a doctor’s clinic in Belgium while he arrived for a surgery to circumcise himself in a non-religious manner. Arrogant and self-confident in his recounting of the story, the young man focuses on the nurse’s actions and figures of speech, which he perceived as offensive, without mentioning the purpose of his visit to the doctor.
