The Time We Have Taken is a Miles Franklin Award-winning novel by Australian author Steven Carroll. It is the third in a sequence of novels, following The Art of the Engine Driver and The Gift of Speed, which follow the development of an outer Melbourne suburb from the 1950s to the 1970s. The novels have been described as a 'slow-moving, Proustian meditation on being and time'[1] and 'a deeply satisfying encounter with the empty spaces that the suburb failed to fill both between people and inside them.'[2]
