Simbi and the Satyr of the Dark Jungle is the fabulous tale of Simbi, a rich and beautiful girl with a wonderful singing voice. She tires of her comfortable lifestyle, and decides that she must come to know poverty and punishment.

His first novel, The Palm-Wine Drinkard, was acquired by T. S. Eliot and published by Faber in 1952.
