To Kill a Mockingbird

list 3 details that suggest the grotesque from this passage

the man was a stranger, and it is rare that a stranger enters the town on foot at that hour. besides, the man was a hunchback. he was scarcely more than four feet tall and he wore a ragged, dusty coat that reached only to his knees. his crooked little legs seemed too thin to carry the weight if his great warped chest and the hump that sat on his shoulders. he had a very large head, with deep-set blue eyes and a sharp little mouth. his face was both soft and sassy--at the moment his pale skin was yellowed by dust and there were lavender shadows beneath his eyes. he carried a lopsided old suitcase which was tied to a rope.
