A disarmingly genuine and funny coming-of-age story of a fourteen-year-old youngster who is trying to find himself by exploring the rebellious subculture of metal, but also a witty, almost documentary-like portrait of the 90s life in Latvia after the collapse of the Soviet Union.  "Doom 94" is a portrait of a generation in the 1990s who are searching for their own identity and are fans of alternative culture. This is a touching story about us as youngsters, when everybody is against the whole world and tries not to become ‘one of them’. But is it for real? Can one keep the promise? The story is set in the 1990s in the Latvian city of Jelgava and looks at the craze during this period for the alternative culture of heavy metal music. Joņevs takes the reader deep inside the world described in the novel: combining the intimate diary of a youngster trying to find himself by joining a subculture, as well as a skilful, detailed and almost documentary-like depiction of the beginnings of the second independence of Latvia.  Even though "Doom94" (Jelgava '94) is Joņev's debut novel, the book quickly proved to be a big hit and upon its publication, “Jelgava 94” became an immediate national bestseller, warmly endorsed by the current fourteen-year-olds of Gen Z as well as earning praise from their parents and teachers alike. 2014 Latvian Literature Award as the Debut of the Year 2014 European Union Prize for Literature ABOUT TRANSLATOR Kaija Straumanis, born in 1985, is a second-generation Latvian-American, born and raised in the state of Minnesota, USA.
