Ésta es una historia sobre la necesidad de escapar de los demás y de uno mismo, sobre el abandono, el amor y los machismos, sobre aquello que se dice, aquello que se insinúa y aquello que se calla, sobre la mentira y las diferentes violencias que enfrentamos.

No contar todo, novela de no ficción, presenta la saga de los Monge, al mismo tiempo que cuenta la historia del país que habitaron. El abuelo, Carlos Monge McKey, descendiente de irlandeses, finge su propia muerte, haciendo estallar la cantera de su cuñado. El padre, Carlos Monge Sánchez, rompe con su familia y con su propia historia para irse a Guerrero, donde, convertido en guerrillero, luchará al lado de Genaro Vázquez. El hijo, Emiliano Monge García, nacerá enfermo y vivirá sus primeros años hospitalizado, por lo que será considerado como el débil de su familia y por lo cual erigirá un mundo de ficciones que con los años se irá haciendo más y más complejo y del que después ya no podrá escapar, más que escapando de todo.

No contar todo es la genealogía de una triple huida, el recordatorio de que una desbandada también puede ser una familia.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

This is a story about the necessity to escape from others and from oneself; about neglect, love, and machismo; about what is said, what is insinuated, and what is left unsaid; about lies and the various forms of violence we face.

 Not Telling Everything, a non-fiction novel, presents the saga of the Monge family while telling the story of the country they lived in. The grandfather, Carlos Monge McKey, descendant of Irishmen, fakes his own death, allowing his brother-in-law’s quarry to explode. The father, Carlos Monge Sánchez, breaks with his family and with his own history to go to Guerrero, where, as a guerrilla, he fights alongside Genaro Vázquez. The son, Emiliano Monge García, is born ill and lives his earliest years in the hospital, for which he is considered the weak one of the family, and because of which he builds a world of fiction that becomes more and more complex over the years, eventually preventing him from escaping it unless he is escaping everything.

Not Telling Everything is the genealogy of a triple escape, the reminder that a jailbreak can also be a family.
