What did you learn at school today? is a six-page short story, the first novel by Australian author Luke Reid, published in 2020. The characters don't have names, they are all just prototypes of characters from funny high school stories: the handsome guy, the nerd, the jock, etc. For the author, it was an experiment with clean lines and stylization into comedic caricature.
