The Salt Lake City Tribune has called Lee Barnes "one of the finest writers of short stories in the contemporary West." Minimal Damage contains seven stories and a novella that depict veterans of several wars in search of dignity and purpose in a civilian life that has no need for men who were soldiers. With emotion, humor, and clarity, Barnes creates characters who show us what it is to live with the trauma of having experienced combat. The fractured souls and twisted lives of these men remind us that war's ultimate damage extends far beyond the battlefield.
