When wine bottle corks are cut from the cork bark, is the cork cut vertically or horizontally through the section of bark? In other words, is there 'grain' directionality in the cork bark that matters in terms of it's function as a wine bottle cork?

Recent poetry, fiction, histories re: Cork, Ireland? The question title says it all, except maybe to clarify: not looking for authors from
Cork so much as stories about or set in Cork.
Even better if it's something that is likely to be on the shelves at a book store in the US.

I keep hearing that synthetic wine corks are endangering the livelihood cork farmers. Why hasn't the upswing in the use of cork flooring offset this phenomenon?
