Mónica de la Torre is a poet, translator, and author. She was born in Mexico City and moved to New York in 1993. She has a BA from Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México and a PhD in Latin American and Iberian cultures from Columbia University.[1] She served as a senior editor at BOMB magazine. She is now a contributing editor at BOMB and teaches creative writing as an assistant professor at Brown University.[2]

The Happy End/All Welcome, de la Torre's sixth and most recent book, is a response to Martin Kippenberger's exhibition The Happy End of Franz Kafka’s “Amerika” and represents the exhibition's "mismatched office furniture" and reimagines the grind of office work in a series of poems.[3][4] For her other works, De la Torre has emphasized the role that translation and self-translation plays in her writing.[5]
