Jam doughnuts have jam. They must have jam, right? But what if one doesn’t? And what if this is deliberate? A petulant act by the hero of this hilarious yarn. How can a jam doughnut create a ripple of events that builds in ascending increments to eventually consume an entire country and return to visit our hero and rogue baker, Bill Baxter?
