Nebe pod Berlínem (The Sky Under Berlin) was unexpectedly well received when it was first published, and the critics described Rudiš as a punk Bohumil Hrabal. These rock stories from the Berlin metro are told by a teacher who has emigrated to Berlin and is making his living by playing the guitar in the underground. Special characters in the story are the spirits of people who were run over in the metro.
