What is the significance of a dis-jointed chronology in a novel? How does this effect the reader? Thanks!

One answer is that it's interesting from the perspective of literary history. In the 18th and 19th centuries, most novels have a pretty straightforward chronology; there's no leaping back and forward in time. Once you get to the early 20th century, people start experimenting with this kind of thing. So it's interesting because it demonstrates that we're no longer in the world of the Victorian novel.
