Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. You are right that it does not make sense. The word for fame is "la fama" and the gender is feminine. If it is capitalized, it would make sense referring to a family named Famas. Just in case there is something "new" out there, I went to the dictionary of the Real Academia Espańola and get the message "the word is not in the dictionary!" Perhaps there is a "typo" in your book?

this is from
I. Viajes – Julio Cortázar
It can be found at the first website you get when you search "Viajes Julio Cortázar" on google.

ˇAjá! That clarifies it. He is using "nominalization with the definite article" so in this case "los famas" means "the famous ones" and "un fama" would be "a famous one."
See why it is SO important to see the CONTEXT or exactly how it is used!
