Walter Robinson’s Preacher is a character study of a man who expounds magical thinking. Magical thinking is the fallacious attribution of causal relationships between actions and events.

Robinson’s work investigates the mechanics of cultural and social anthropology. Using text and the strategies of appropriation, conflation, and dislocation, he uncovers the subconscious and biological human imperatives hidden beneath social, political, religious, and capitalist packaging.
