It's unlikely Cherilyn Sarkesian is quite so shallow, self-centered, and irresponsible as she's presented here. A teen runaway, she began her career as a go-go dancer on Sunset Strip. She teamed with and later married the shrewdly ambitious Sonny Bono, who, she now says, controlled her like a puppet. The pair scored several top ten records and went on to star in a top-rated TV variety show. Since Cher broke with Sonny her lifestyle has kept the tabloids filled. But she's quieted those who pegged her as a no-talent celebrity by her unexpectedly fine acting performances in films like Silkwood. Writing without Cher's cooperation, Taraborrelli had to piece things together from interviews and old magazine articles. The result is a biography as flat as last night's champagne and as deep as a People magazine profile. Unless demand dictates, wait for Cher to tell her own story. Thomas Jewell, Waltham P.L., Mass.
