I was reading Leigh Bardugo’s Crooked Kingdom when I noticed a weird line:

Passage from Leigh Bardugo's Crooked Kingdom that reads like a hunchback reference.
An Homage???

Now to anyone else this wouldn’t ring any “bells” but I see what you did there. It’s an oddly worded description. A guess is that this passage was originally evocative of Hugo’s character much like Martin did in A Feast for Crows. I think this particular line got edited but the framing is still present enough. There are multiple other ways to convey the imagery without linking the words “humped,” “back” with “cathedral” together.

Still it a fun little homage if true.
