The Opposite of Fallingconfirms Costa-shortlisted Jennie Rooney as an author with a remarkable and rare talent

The Opposite of Fallingconfirms Costa-shortlisted Jennie Rooney as an author with a remarkable and rare talent.

Jennie Rooney's debut novel, Inside the Whale, was a second world war romance that shuttled between the carrier-pigeon . But the success of the first book enabled her to concentrate exclusively on her second, which confirms what a singular voice she possesses.

Jennie Rooney's debut novel, Inside the Whale, was a second world war romance that shuttled between the carrier-pigeon corps in Cairo and the Sun-Pat peanut butter factory in Peckham. It struck all the right popular notes – Richard and Judy choice, serialisation on Woman's Hour, shortlist for the Costa first-novel award – yet for all its sharp, pithy prose there was a piecemeal quality to it, as if the brief chapters had been composed in Rooney's lunch hour.

The Opposite of Falling by Jennie Rooney.

The Independent Books. It will be more than interesting to see whether Rooney produces different narrative structures, even favouring a loose, baggy monster

The Independent Books. Across the Atlantic, at Niagara Falls, Toby O'Hara lost his mother in one of his father's early experiments in flight, something which has not curtailed his own endeavours to defy gravity, as he seeks solace with a taste for Thomas Cook's early forays into organised travel. Ursula makes bold to visit America, and takes with her as a companion Sally, an orphan who has spent her early years in a nunnery. It will be more than interesting to see whether Rooney produces different narrative structures, even favouring a loose, baggy monster. In the meantime, her work should inspire a canny producer to ask her to write a screenplay.
