Martin Hall’s epic novel The Last Romantic received massive attention by the Danish media and press corpse at the time of its release in August 2005. The book – a two-volume thick publication covering more than 700 pages – became Hall’s literary breakthrough in his home country.

In October 2008 the Lithuanian publishing company Tyto Alba released the title in the former Soviet republic under the title Paskutinis Romantikas (“The Last Romantics”). The company releases approximately 100 books a year and had earlier published translations of bestsellers such as Ms. Smilla’s Sense of Snow by Peter Hoeg, Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder and Foucault’s Pendulum by Umberto Eco.

An excerpt of the translation goes like this: „Tavo plaukus čiupinėja kekšė.“
„O kuri yra ne kekšė?“ – Nikolas pažvelgė į mane. – Jos tą daro tik savo kūnais, ką mes darome su savo sielomis.“

In this context the book is mainly included in the biography due to its peculiar choice of front cover – something neither Hall nor his Danish publishing company had anything to do with.
