People in Glass Houses by Shirley Hazzard

Only those who keep their wit and affections about them will survive the mass conditioning of the Organization, where confusion solemnly rules and conformity is king. As in our world itself, humanity prevails in the courage, love, and laughter of singular spirits—of men and women for whom life is an adventure no Organization can quell, and whose souls remain their own.
