Cher. There's really no one else quite like her. She's been a pop star, a TV star, a movie star, and a wife and mother, yet as "The New York Times" has written, she's still "a funny, gutsy woman" who is also "genuine" and "down to earth." And now, in "The First Time, " Cher tells about the important first-time events in her life.

Sonny Bono once said that Cher was so stupid that she thought the moon was the back side of the sun. Well, if he had lived to read this book he would be eating those very mean words. Cher had many first times in her life, and she puts them all down on paper here. For example, Cher shares her thoughts on politics in the section entitled "My First Allergic Reaction to Republicans." Here, she comments that Jackie Kennedy was much better looking than Mamie Eisenhower. How could anyone vote for Nixon, wonders Cher, when he was so "creepy" and his wife was "pinchy-faced"? But Cher thinks about more than just politics. There's also the first time she had sex with an Italian, the first time she had sex with a "bad boy" and the first time she had sex with a "mook." Cher even has something to say about clothing. If you're looking for a book that's hard to read, look elsewhere, but if you want the inside scoop on the depths of Cher's thoughts, served up in one-page essays, this is the book for you. --James DiGiovannaFrom Kirkus Reviews:
A collection of short, easily digestible anecdotesof her first Rolling Stones concert, her first solo recording, her first wedding ceremonytold by Cher and committed to paper in a tone of talkiness that seems to come straight from the tape recorder. Each brief recollection, some not more than a paragraph in span, stands on its own, but the separate reflections combine to tell the larger story of Chers bumpy rise from poor sassy kid and naive starlet to independent singer and award-winning actress. Much to her credit, Cher has bypassed the common pitfall of the confessional genre: that of over-analyzing minor events and attributing to them major, long-term outcomes. Instead, the memories are stated sparsely; she doesnt spend too much time explaining them or justifying them emotionally. The result: a lighter, more enjoyable read. Though her bits and pieces dont always hang together solidly, and dont always follow in exact chronological order, the overall effect is nevertheless like listening in on Chers candid musings about significant events in her life. Oddly enough, her gimmicky format (most vignettes end too conveniently with an aphorism) actually works. Co-author Coplon has also been co-author to Sarah, Duchess of York. Despite cute, contrived styling, the reminiscences unfold in an honest and personal (though sometimes performed) fashion. As an added bonus, one can open the book at almost any page and start right inthe perfect arrangement for hard-pressed readers.
