Simbi and the Satyr of the Dark Jungle

The heroine of Simbi & the Satyr of the Dark Jungle is the only daughter of a wealthy woman, the most beautiful girl in her village and a wonderful singer. Disenchanted with her privileged existence and her mother’s wealth, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery, determined to know and experience Poverty and Punishment.

She got just what she asked for – and more – as the story tells, in bewildering detail and with terrifying imagination and comic invention, how she got it and how in the end she escaped from it.
