Perhaps it's coming out in the US on a delayed schedule. Also, could you point out to the author of the review an error?

He wrote:

Spufford inflects his historical research via these sorts of Russian "skaza," and above all, typical skaza "dreams of abundance," stories where everyone was going to climb the cabbage stalk, scramble through the hole in the sky and arrive in the land where millstones turned all by themselves.

The word is skazka, not skaza.

Next time I see him on Twitter, I'll pass that along. Or to his editor, who's also on my Twitter list.
