L'appel du vide


New Member
So I came across this French expression "L'appel du vide" from the website Better than English, which apparently translates to "call of the void", or the irrational urge to jump off a high place you're on.

I'd like to use this expression in my writing. The problem is, I don't know whether this is an actual expression that French people use. A quick Google search (in English) turns up blogs, which are hardly reliable.

So I'm turning to here. Does anyone know whether this is an expression that is actually used by French people in the context I'm describing?
