In 1986, at the age of 23, Jeffrey Marx became the youngest-ever winner of the Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting. Then came other journalism awards – including the National Headliner and the Green Eyeshade – and Marx's first magazine project landed his work on the cover of Sports Illustrated. Marx delivers popular keynotes around the country based on one of his most personal novels, It Gets Dark Sometimes (2000, JAM Publishing), which chronicles his sister's remarkable experiences with organ donation and transplantation.
