What is this grotesque, possibly German short story?

Help me remember the name and author of this short story.
The pathetic male main character is abused and humiliated by an abusive female character (his wife, I think). The culmination involves some sort of grotesque and humiliating performance by the main character at a party, arranged by the wife.

I vaguely remember the author being German (though I could be wrong), and I read it in an anthology, so it's probably by someone pretty well known.
