I would pick Shalimar the Clown because Salman Rusdie is supposed to be a good author or Mark Haddon's book which has a Sparknotes.

I suggest using a site (Amazon, Goodreads, Wiki, etc.) to find the synopsis for each book. Keep narrowing it down till one wins. Or read a few of the ones you think sound like the best options.
