Can anyone recommend a really good novel that could be considered at least in part and hopefully largely anti-cancel culture?

I have already read:

Philip Roth’s The Human Stain
David Reich’s The Antiracism Trainings
George Orwell 1984 (Not anti-cancel culture per se, but I thought I’d just throw that one in there)

Please no Ayn Rand recommendations. I can’t stand her writing ....

This is going to sound very random. However, I honestly believe that the "Harry Potter" series could be read this way. There is a great deal of political and sociocultural commentary in those novels between Quidditch and butter beer.

Wish I could recommend one. My brain is so saturated with the ugly news of what's happening in our society today that I find myself being pulled to fictional mystery romance novels. I don't want to be reminded of anything political right now. It has an adverse effect on my psyche. I'm amazed that I can get lost in a book now for hours and surprised that I've read more books in the past month than I have in the last 20 years. I'm averaging a book every two and a half days.

You're a stronger person than I. Even the thought of reading something about this disgusting cancel culture, pro or con, makes my skin crawl.

Hope you find just the right book, though.
