Book of short stories written by Rick Moody, published in 1995 originally, but now, there's a pretty paperback version out on Warner Books. As you would expect from Moody, the stories are exceptionally creepy. The first story is about a jilted lover who becomes more and more obsessed with his faithless wife, to the point of jogging with tapes of his wife's and lover's conversations. While it doesn't get any weirder than that, it never really veers in to light-hearted comedy. The title refers to the cast of characters in the title novella. It's uneven - but this is quite a nice book.
