Ok, so till about 5 minutes back I did not know this formation existed.

"Just as reading Samuel Pepys’s diary gives a student a sense of the seventeenth century—of its texture and psyche—so listening to Jane Freed’s guileless child narrator takes the operagoer inside turn-of-the-century Vienna."

Can someone give me some more examples of usage of this idiom?

Thanks!
