What are some books with themes similar to Bend Sinister? More specifically I mean something like what the Party of the Average Man espouses: equal mediocrity, averageness and so on. It doesn't have to be political if that is not unavoidable.

Harrison Bergeron. Obviously the writing isn't as good, though.

I always thought it was odd that Bend Sinister isn't more popular since dystopian fiction has such wide reach. Nabokov's take on the genre easily eclipses (for example) Fahrenheit 451 and that one book about the eighties.
