Overview

IS THE 27 CLUB JUST A MYTH? (No). Is it a “curse?” (No). It’s more than just the deaths of famous rock stars. Using the teachings of the Moon Cycles and C G Jung’s notion of the puer, the creative person who is always young beyond his years and often dies an early physical or emotional death, Michael Owen explains what happens to us all in our mid- to late-twenties.
