Non-Linear Timelines

What I love about books with a non-linear structure (and here I'm thinking of A Visit From the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan, Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel and The Coincidence Authority by John Ironmonger) is that, when you reach the end, you can head straight back to the beginning and start again without feeling that you've left the story. Because there is no beginning, middle and end in the traditional sense, the story is both cyclical and enduring, like one of Escher's optical illusions.
