South of Lobber Point is, in essence, a sequel to East of Varley Head. It extends the range of recollections that were described in the first title and adds to the cast of characters who featured in it. The personal orientation of the memories brought to the pages is also accentuated, making the book much more autobiographical in scope than its predecessor. Taken together, the two titles complement one another, yet each can be read as a work in its own right. South of Lobber Point concludes with a sketch of the village of Port Isaac as it is in the present day. The book exists in memoriam of those who populate its pages, gone from this world perhaps, although no one has to believe they are gone if they don’t want to.
