Please recommend books that are similar to 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time' (not just ones about autism).

What I really like about the novel:
- Realism, or for some the fine line between realism and magic realism.
- Simple, effective, unpretentious prose with very few adverbs.
- Chronological narrative interspersed with asides/flashbacks.
- Tonnes of detail!
Thanks hive mind:)
