Summary (From the publisher):

Secrecy and Silence are second nature to Marcello Clerici, the hero of The Conformist. He is a man who seems to have everything under control - a wife who loves him, colleagues who respect him, the hidden power that comes with his secret work for the Italian political police during the Mussolini years. But beneath this composed surface lies a conscience in turmoil. Since childhood Clerici has struggled with conflicting urges - a compulsion to hurt others and an obsessive desire to conform. But when he is assigned to kill his former professor, now in exile, and falls in love with a strange, compelling woman; his life is torn open - and exposed within it Moravia reveals the corrupt heart of Fascism.
