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

"Just as reading Samuel Pepysâ€™s diary gives a student a sense of the seventeenth centuryâ€”of its texture and psycheâ€”so listening to Jane Freedâ€™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!
