Homer Fink could speak Latin and Greek or chart the orbit of the planet Jupiter, but when it came to tying his shoelaces or knotting his tie Homer was helpless. The Adventures of Homer Fink is a story of youth's first awareness of power and philosophy and love. It is peopled with characters as real as your next door neighbors and yet uniquely extraordinary. Above all this is a tale full of humor and affection and the wonder of growing up.
