(From the publisher):
Windsor Armstrong has a problem: her football superstar son, Pushkin X, is in love with a Russian lap dancer. In Windsor's opinion, Pushkin is throwing away everything she has worked for. When she was an unwed teenaged mother, Windsor left her shady Detroit roots behind to attend Harvard. She raised Pushkin to be fiercely intelligent, well-spoken, and proud. Now he lives for pro football and a white woman named Tanya. Outraged by her son's decisions but deeply devoted to loving him right, Windsor prepares to give up her last secret: the identity of Pushkin's father.
